What is Head Start™?
Formal studies have demonstrated that children who have attended Head Start™enter kindergarten “ready to learn” and perform significantly better throughout the school years than their counterparts who did not attend Head Start™.
Sieda Head Start™ is a preschool experience for low-income and disabled children 3-5 years of age. Head Start™ is a holistic approach to early childhood education that addresses not only the educational needs of the children but also the health, nutrition, social, mental health and literacy needs as well. Multi-cultural classrooms serve children who are unable to speak English or speak English as a secondary language.
Children attend preschool classes four days a week. Meals and snacks are served. In addition to the classroom activities, children and their parents take part in field trips to expose them to educational and cultural activities in their communities.
Applications for Head Start™ are taken throughout the year.
