Head Start is a national program that promotes school readiness by enhancing the social and cognitive development of children through the provision of educational health nutritional social and other services to enrolled children and families.
LESA is the grantee for the Livingston County Head Start Programs providing comprehensive child development services to economically disadvantaged three to five year old children and their families. 10% of the funded slots are “reserved” for children with disabilities for inclusion in classrooms. The curriculum has a focus on helping preschoolers develop the early reading and math skills needed to be successful in school. Additionally attention to the whole child includes a focus on social and emotional development. Children learn skills to negotiate problem solve and develop empathy as they interact with their peers and other adults in early childhood settings. Activities to develop gross and fine motors skills are included on a daily basis to make sure all five of the dimensions of readiness are addressed.
Significant emphasis is placed on the involvement of parents engaging them in their child’s learning and making decisions about their educational goals. Parents are encouraged to participate in the classrooms by planning and supervising activities. There is also opportunity to serve on committees emphasizing health and nutrition as well as connecting with community resources. Parent may become involved in Policy Council making decisions about programs and services for families.
