Parents are actively involved by volunteering, attending relevant training and participating in the planning, budgeting and staff selection process. Each child enrolled is assessed individually in both cognitive and emotional domains to foster the greatest possibility for school success. Children receive medical and dental services and establish sound nutritional habits that are developed on a daily basis in the classroom. Head Start works with other community resource providers to ensure the needs of each family is met.
