Our certified Head Start teachers engage children in classroom activities to promote excitement about learning. The Creative Curriculum emphasis is focused on attaining appropriate child outcomes in language development, literacy, and socialization. Head Start helps children explore their feelings, to develop self-confidence and the skills needed to interact with others, while encouraging them to share. Head Start embraces the cultural diversity of children and encourages them to celebrate their differences. Basic educational concepts of letters and numbers are introduced, to ensure school readiness.
School Readiness is...
* Children ready for school
* Families ready to support their children's learning
* Schools are ready for children
Ready children are healthy, rested, and able to pay attention, follow directions and communicate their thoughts and needs without being disruptive. Children enter kindergarten with a wide variety of skills and knowledge. There is not just one thing, nor a list of skills, that makes a child ready for school. All areas of a child's development should be considered when determining if a child is ready, not just her/his academic skills. Ready children have families who support their learning, and schools that are prepared to meet their individual needs.
