Family Handbooks

Head Start and Early Head Start are child-focused birth to five programs. Our overall goal is increasing each child’s everyday effectiveness in dealing with both the present environment and the future responsibilities of school and life. This process takes into account the connections between the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development of the child.

Exam Forms

Head Start requires complete health exams – Physical and dental.  Documentation of ALL screenings is necessary in order to provide prompt assistance to families to best meet the health and developmental needs of the child.
