The Head Start program is also one of the agency programs that offers numerous services to income eligible families. Our service area is Clayton County with two sites – Brookwood and South Avenue. We are a federally funded program providing services to 352 preschool children ages 3 -5 years of age. We also receive state funds through Bright From the Start to provide Pre – K blended services for two of our classrooms at the South Avenue Center.

Head Start provides services, e.g., Education, Health, Nutrition, Parent Engagement, Disabilities, Mental Health, Classroom Extension, etc. ensuring that the children are equipped, and ready to transition to Kindergarten. Among the many services they receive are medical and dental care, healthy meals and snacks, classroom curriculum instruction and quality recreation (indoors/outdoors). Also, Head Start services are offered to meet the special needs of children with disabilities. Included in the curriculum are special programs for the children such as activities that will assist them mentally, socially, emotionally, and physically.

Our Creative Curriculum is aligned with the State Early Learning Standards (GELDS), Office of Head Start Child Outcomes Framework. Through the Teaching Strategy Assessment tool, the children are assessed three times a year. At each assessment point data is collected, tallied and graphed. This process helps to identify children that need additional skills to attain the program's set school readiness goals.
