Head Start encourages parent participation! Want to gain job/leadership skills? Start attending parent meetings and join the policy Council when there’s a spot. Parents get to help decide how our classes/curriculum run.
If your kiddo is heading towards kindergarten make sure:
-they get their shots
-and that you practice calling us every time you’re unable to make class. The public school will call you each time your child is absent and ask you why…
