The Head Start Approach to School Readiness

The Head Start Approach to School Readiness means that children are ready for school, families are ready to support their children's learning and schools are ready for children. For parents and families, school readiness means they are engaged in the long-term, lifelong success of their child. Head Start recognizes that parents are children's primary teachers and advocates.

Early Head Start

Babies are born ready to learn. The Early Head Start program focuses on supporting and guiding parent-child relationships in the critical years from zero to three. Early Head Start is a year round program serving pregnant women and children up to 3 years of age. Applications are accepted at any time and enrollment is on-going.
