Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Children enter the world ready to learn. PICA's Head Start and Early Head Start programs help children build on this natural ability. PICA respects each child's individuality and honors his/her cultural, ethnic, and family heritage. Our child-centered curriculum, the New World Curriculum, focuses on the interests, learning styles, and developmental needs of the individual child and helps each child develop self-esteem, self-help skills, and socialization skills.
Parent involvement is the most important part of Head Start and Early Head Start. At PICA, parents have decision-making power and are involved in all parts of the program.
