Head Start is a federal preschool program that promotes the school readiness of children ages birth to 5 from low-income families by enhancing their cognitive, social, and emotional development. Telamon operates three types of Head Start programs for disadvantaged families: Head Start (preschool for children ages 3 to 5 years old), Early Head Start (childcare for children 0 to 3 years old and pregnant women), and Migrant and Seasonal Head Start (childcare and preschool for children of eligible farmworkers ages 0 to 5 years old). Children with disabilities are encouraged to participate in all programs. Telamon’s approach to Head Start services includes: A nurturing environment that supports the healthy growth and development of each child in the context of the child's family, culture, and community Parents as partners in the shared decision-making process and as active participants in policy groups; and Recognition of the importance of strengthening linkages within communities.
