Details

The Nespelem Head Start program is located on the main agency campus of the Colville Confederated Tribes in Nespelem, WA. Chidren attending the Nespelem Head Start program are representative of a diverse cultural community. Due to the Tribe's largest employment base being located in the Nespelem and Coulee Dam area, families bring a diversity of cultures and languages. Languages represented in the Head Start program are nselxcin, nxa?amxcin, nimipu, and English. The maximum enrollment at the Nespelem Head Start is 40. We have two classrooms with a staff of eleven. Our program is housed in a brand new facility which provides a quality learning environment for our children.
