"Head Start believes that each child is a unique individual. A child can benefit most from a comprehensive program which involves both the family and the community. As the family is the principle influence on the child's development, they must be a direct participant in the program. Thus, the program serves the child, not only through educational, health, nutrition, and mental health services for the child, but also providing support and needed services for the total family. As the basic needs of the family are met, it is enabled to better nurture the development of its' children.
