We are the one early childhood education organization that meets the total needs of each child, thereby ensuring that every child will have the same opportunity as his or her more advantaged peers to succeed in school and life. Our goals and objectives address the needs and demographics of families, promote the highest level of services possible, are culturally sensitive, and ensure that families and children leave Head Start with the desire to be lifelong learners and achievers.
