The mission of the Kickapoo Head Start and Early Head Start Program is to enhance children’s growth and development, strengthen families as the primary nurturers of their children, provide children with educational, health and nutritional services, link children and families to needed community services and ensure well-managed programs that involve parents in decision-making as it relates to their children’s overall health and welfare through the Parent Policy Council. Early childhood education is provided by hands on educational, behavioral, physical and social skill developmental learning experiences by trained early childhood education personnel, mental health and special education programs and continual health monitoring to promote successful transition in mainstreamed elementary and secondary educational programs.
