Head Start has a very specific educational philosophy. Our priority is to help
children develop a positive self-image in the formative years. We consider
all factors that affect the total child’s development: social, emotional,
intellectual and physical. Special emphasis is placed on the development of a
positive self-image because if children feel good about who they are, it is
easier for them to be happy, successful people. Priority is given to
socialization, which helps children learn to relate well with each other and
with adults. When a child learns the skills of positive socialization, he/she
acquires a very useful tool for living. An important part of teaching positive
self-image and socialization is the development of a child’s skills in self-help,
cognitive, social, emotional, language and large and small muscle areas.
