"Head Start serves disadvantaged children ages zero to five years by preparing them for school. A primary focus of this effort is an emphasis on helping families by teaching parenting skills and life skills. Head Start is successful because we work holistically with each child and family through a balanced approach of parent involvement, health, nutrition, social competency, literacy and numeracy development. This combination is what ensures that Head Start children will be ready to learn when they enter kindergarten"
