YMCA HEAD START PROGRAM
Head Start is a federal program that promotes the school readiness of children ages 3 to 5 from low-income families by enhancing their cognitive, social and emotional development.
Head Start programs provide comprehensive services to enrolled children and their families, which include health, nutrition, social services and other services determined to be necessary by family needs assessments, in addition to education and cognitive development services. Head Start services are designed to be responsive to each child and family’s ethnic, cultural and linguistic heritage.
Why you should consider this Program:
- Learning Experiences
Starting early and right with quality learning experiences through Head Start can help your child succeed now and throughout life.
- Skilled Teachers
Our teachers understand early childhood development and are committed to helping each preschool child prepare for a successful kindergarten experience.
If your family qualifies, there is no cost for Head Start.
