Details
Head Start/Early Head Start is a comprehensive early childhood development program designed to provide education, health and social services to low income children, ages 0-5 and their families. Maricopa County Head Start emphasizes on pre-reading, language, math and other cognitive skills, while continuing to promote children's health, social and emotional competence as part of school readiness. Services to children are provided by qualified and well-trained teachers in a classroom setting with a low student-teacher ratio. The low ratio allows us to make a significant and meaningful impact on the educational and social development of the children that we serve.
