Bus transportation services allow Head Start of Yamhill County to overcome what we see as the largest barrier to participation in a rural county. Buses pick up children and families in Early Head Start for socialization activities every other week, twice a week for 3 year old preschoolers, and three times a week for older preschool (children 4-5) classes. Providing bus transportation has a positive impact on attendance. Buses also transport children on field trips to extend learning beyond the classroom. Head Start buses follow neighborhood-based routes so that children and parents can form relationships likely to continue in public elementary schools.
