Head Start is a comprehensive preschool program, serving children from three to five years old. Head Start provides children with developmentally appropriate activities that help them grow socially, emotionally, mentally and physically with the overall goal of increasing school readiness.

Head Start provides a range of individualized services and opportunities pertaining to health, mental health, nutrition, and parent involvement.  

Head Start recognizes that parents are the first and most important teachers of their children. We welcome parent involvement in our program activities.
