This Head Start program is amazing! Not only did it foster my daughter’s mind and imagination to grow, but it provided room for me to grow as well through many volunteering opportunities. Get involved!

My son has always been extremely shy to the point he didn’t want to go anywhere without me. Head Start changed that completely! He is a whole new kid! He loves being around other kids and is so excited to go to school! I HIGHLY recommend Head Start!
