Welcome to theHead Start Classroom • The Head Start classroom is designed for three to five year old learners in a preschool setting.• This Head Start classroom is fully included with Oxford Schools ECSE (early childhood special education) program. The staff from both programs work as a team to give all students the best educational experience possible. Inclusion allows children from all backgrounds with a variety of needs, the ability to come together in one environment to play and learn. Children learn best through play and what better way to teach open-mindedness, tolerance and acceptance, than through interaction with friends. • There are two qualified staff members that work one on one with students. All Head Start staff has either an Associate Degree in Early Childhood, or a CDA - Child Development Associate Credential.• They use the High Scope Curriculum in guiding their instruction. Through High Scope children find out how the world works through their own experience with people, objects, and events, called active learning. Teachers set the stage for learning through a carefully planned environment and consistent daily routine. Children learn to be secure and independent learners. Each child has a daily opportunity to choose their plan for the day, carry out that plan and then reflect on what happened; this is called choose - act - reflect.
