Voices of Head Start:

"Before beginning at Head Start, my son, Carlos, could not be understood. Since he has started, he has opened up to others, shares, talks, eats better and is calmer. He loves his classroom and looks forward to going to school. It has also helped me to understand him; not only his speech but also his abilities. The overall experience has been great for both Carlos and I. I will miss Head Start and the staff when he goes to kindergarten.”
