A Typical Day

"The white bus picks up the first Head Start child by 7:30 a.m. and school begins at 8:30 a.m. Breakfast is served. Developmentally appropriate practices are followed through the use of preschool curriculum called CREATIVE CURRICULUM which outlines fifty objectives to prepare the child to enter kindergarten.
Following a busy morning of inside and outside activities, the children are served lunch, rest for a thirty minute period, engage in literacy activities, and are fed a snack before they are released at 2:00 p.m. to be taken home. Monday through Thursday the child has as set routine of going to school.
The Performance Standards outlining best practices for children and their families are followed in all the classrooms.
Transitioning to kindergarten is made easy through the Head Start process."
