Head Start is a uniquely organized and comprehensive Early Childhood Program. We provide a comprehensive preschool experience to children, including children with special needs, to creatively challenge and develop their competency skills. Our goal is to help the children build self-confidence and competence needed to become lifelong learners. Washtenaw County Head Start nurtures the WHOLE child in the context of family and community. We see our program as a catalyst for change as we partner with our families.
