The program is based on the premise that the parents are the primary educators of their children.  The Head Start program provides a leaning environment with various experiences that are developmentally appropriate and that will help children develop socially, intellectually, physically, and emotionally.  It is designed to increase school readiness and develop a child’s fullest potential.

At Head Start we provide free medical and dental screening, healthy meals and safe activities indoors and out.
