Voices of Head Start:

"Head Start has given my daughter the chance to expand her social skills and to learn. She loves her teacher and speaks so much about her classmates and the other teachers. Head Start has not only afforded her the opportunity to develop and grow but has also given our family more people to help raise our daughter to be the best that she can be.”
