Head Start provides a developmentally appropriate education to children who otherwise would not have the opportunity to be prepared for kindergarten.  Head Start children obtain educational outcomes in language, literacy, numeracy, science, and social development.
Self Sufficiency
Head Start aims to guide families in creating goals which lead them on a path to living self-determined lives – including the freedoms of self-sufficiency.  Head Start is dedicated to promoting the empowerment of people by helping them to identify and capitalize on their strengths.
Head Start provides a comprehensive program of health services to each child by promoting preventative health and early intervention.  Families are provided skills, insights, and linkages needed to obtain ongoing health care.
