Voices of Head Start:

“Head Start has been a tremendous help to my family in many ways. My son, Amari, has learned so much and communicates with myself and my husband much better. I have also seen improvements with how he interacts with his baby sister. His teacher and her classroom staff have also played a huge role in helping to fully potty-train Amari. I am forever grateful for the love and patience the staff at Head Start has for my son.”
