Details
Head Start is a federally funded program, offered at all six Child Development Centers, for income eligible children three to five years old and their families. Families must be income eligible to enroll their child in Wyoming Head Start. Head Start promotes school readiness in children and self-sufficiency for Wyoming families through health services, social services, nutritious meals, parent involvement, home visits and early childhood education. Services incorporate preschool two days per week with lunch and two home visits per month. Home visits are family focused, engaging parents in activities designed to improve child development and enhance school readiness. Staff brainstorms with families goals for improving self-sufficiency, facilitate parent engagement in educational and training programs and encourage their pursuit of employment. Staff provides information about services in the community and link families to financial, in-kind, medical, and social support services as well as self sufficiency programs.
