This is a great time to give us feedback on how we can better you and your child's experience with Head Start. Please click the link and complete the online survey before Friday February 24th, 2023 at 5:00pm. If you are unable to complete the online survey, we have a paper copy at the center. Let a staff member know you need a paper copy and one will be provided. You only need to complete the survey 1 time (on paper or online). Thank you so much for all your support!

Head Start families: Head Start stands firm on celebrating our seasons and not focusing on holidays that some families choose not to observe. On Monday, we will celebrate the characters that make us laugh and smile by wearing clothing (t-shirts, pajamas) that highlight their favorite character. No costumes will be allowed and please keep all accessories at home (crowns, wands, swords, masks, etc.). We look forward to a day of fun and continued learning for our children!
