"The Head Start philosophy rests on four basic principles:
A child can benefit most from a comprehensive, interdisciplinary program to foster normal development and remedy problems;
Parents are the primary educators of their children and must be directly involved in the program;
The well-being of children is inextricably linked to the well-being of the entire family; and
Partnerships with other agencies and organizations in the community are essential to meeting family needs."
