Get involved in our parent activities and volunteer opportunities.
Parents and family members are the first teachers in a child’s life and are always welcome in our Head Start and Early Head Start classroom and during our program activities. Participation in your child’s early development and learning can make a big difference in your child’s readiness for school and future success.
Family Services child development programs offer you a number of ways enhance your child’s participation and learning while enriching your parenting skills and self-confidence:
Learn about our child development programs and philosophy and how we make your child’s experience meaningful.
During the application process, parents meet with one of our Family Advocates for a one-on-one interview during which you identify your needs and can get referrals for resources and emergency assistance. Head Start teachers also conduct home visits.
Meet with your child’s teacher to learn about your child’s performance in language, literacy, mathematics, science, creative arts, social and emotional skills and our approaches to learning and physical health.
