Head Start serves over 150 children, three to five years old, from economically disadvantaged families. The program provides services in the areas of education, nutrition, health, mental health, transportation, and social services. The children are in class 3 ½ hours a day; being offered the opportunity to gain all the skills necessary to succeed. Degreed teachers provide the children with these opportunities. Parents are encouraged to become involved in their children’s education and are given information as to what they can do to help.
Head Start also offers a home based program where a qualified teacher goes into a family’s home each week and works with the parents to teach their child the skills they will need to be successful.
The center based program runs four days a week for 32 weeks per year. The entire program follows all federal rules, Ohio Dept. of Education rules, and the guidelines set forth by Ohio Dept. of Jobs and Family services. We strive to provide quality service to children and their families, and to help them reach their full potential. For a full detail of this program please click here.
