Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Head Start's philosophy is to provide a safe and healthy environment for your child. Staff will provide a variety of developmentally appropriate individualized activities for each child enrolled in our Head Start program. Parents will support these activities by reinforcing them at home.
We encourage the entire family to become involved in the Head Start program. Parents are viewed as the first and primary educator of their children and therefore, should be integrally involved in the education of their child by volunteering in the classroom, attending parent committee meetings, and assisting with special activities at the center.
