Qualified Teachers, Assistants and Family Service Workers assist parents to determine the strengths, interests and needs of each child for children ages 3 to 5. Staff plan an environment and activities that are based on developmentally appropriate practices and Head Start Early Childhood Standards.
Focus is on school readiness and development in: Math, Science, Literacy, Language, Social/Emotional and Physical Health and Development. Our curriculum is aligned with the State Early Learning Standards.
Children With Disabilities
Our program must ensure that 10% of our enrollment opportunities are filled with children with diagnosed disabilities. We partner with public schools and other providers to make services available for children with disabilities. We also provide support services for families.
We provide a comprehensive health screening for each child, including an assessment of growth and development, vision, hearing, speech and basic oral health. We also assist families with Well-Child Checks and regular dental check-ups.
We offer health education to our parents and children on topics including first aid, safety and others requested by parents.
We believe that emotional and social growth depends on positive mental health. For this reason, we have access to a mental health professional for staff, children and parents.
Enrolled pre-school children receive two nutritious meals and a snack each day*, with menus planned and approved by a Registered Dietitian. In addition, nutrition education and training is offered on a regular basis to all enrolled children and families. See our Monthly Menu to find out what we are serving.
