Voices of Head Start:

"Head Start has helped my son, Jeremy, in many ways. In the time he has been in this program, Jeremy has learned to share with his brother. He has also learned how to be independent. Jeremy enjoys singing and dancing at school and is happy to assist his teacher. The Head Start program has also helped Jeremy to learn English and is supportive of our family.”
