Head Start Director
Welcome to Head Start! I am thrilled that you have chosen the Head Start program for your family this year.
Head Start recognizes that parents are the primary educators of their children and you are their role model and guide. As Head Start Staff, we want to support you in that role. I encourage you to advocate for your child and be involved in your child’s preschool experience.
To help you understand your role as a caring parent, we have prepared a family handbook. In the family handbook, you will find important information on attendance, transportation, health and dental requirements, and family involvement. The purpose of this handbook is to provide families with information regarding the services, policies, procedures and regulations of the Head Start program.
Please keep this handbook in a convenient, safe place so you can refer to it throughout the program year. After reviewing this information, if you have any questions or concerns, please speak with your child’s teacher, family advocate, or the program director.
We look forward to your active and informed participation. Our goal is to provide a quality experience for your family.
