Investing in children today for a better tomorrow.
Partnering with families and communities to reach our full potential.
You cannot make a positive difference in the lives of children without partnering with the whole family and the communities in which they live. We support parents as the primary educators of their children and encourage their involvement at all levels of Head Start through volunteering in the classroom, participating on committees and advisory groups, and aiding in policy making through the Policy Council.
We promote developmentally appropriate practices, family literacy, ensure safety in a stimulating environment, protect children's health and nutrition through sound practices and linking up with health providers, and teach all eight domains of early learning to ensure success in school.
