A whole-family approach is at the heart of our Preschool and Head Start program. Our dedicated and highly-qualified staff will support your family through a host of services that focus on your child’s school readiness by promoting the total well-being of your entire family.

We are always looking for new ways to work in partnership with you to maximize your child’s learning and development. Monthly home visits and on-site parent activities create opportunities for a classroom-home connection that is strong and individualized to your family and child. Your voice is essential in shaping the services your family and child receives.

Full- and part-day programs are built around your child’s strengths and highlight activities and experiences that improve their academic skills as well as social-emotional and physical development—all important for future success in learning. Music, nutrition, health education, and field trips to community sites mean that your child is learning new skills everyday while building relationships with young friends and caring adults.

We believe your child’s physical wellness is essential to their readiness for Kindergarten. We conduct regular health screenings to determine their physical, oral, developmental and behavioral needs. Special needs and mental health services and support are readily available.

Our program has been designated by the Office of Head Start as a program of excellence and by the Department of Early Education and Care as a Universal Pre-Kindergarten program—a recognition of the highest standard of quality.  We also participate in the State QRIS Program. Now more than ever we can help you meet your family’s needs while nurturing your child’s full development and ultimately ensuring their future academic success.

The Head Start program is free to qualifying families. Families may qualify for state-subsidized sliding-scale fees to access full day, full year programs. We also accept vouchers.
