Head Start is our oldest program, serving preschool children and their families from the low-income community in six counties: Piatt, DeWitt, Logan, Menard, Mason, and Fulton. Head Start centers provide a wide range of services in the following communities: Cisco, Clinton, Lincoln, Petersburg, Manito, Havana, Lewistown, Canton and Farmington.
Head Start provides opportunity for children to develop socially, cognitively and emotionally with age-appropriate activities and materials. To meet the physical needs of the growing children, all medical information is reviewed and nutritious meals are served daily. Screening assessments are completed regarding medical, dental, hearing, vision and speech. Required referrals are made when deemed necessary. Educational assessments are conducted to develop individualized programs for the enrolled children.
Parent and community volunteers are always welcome in the classroom. Volunteers participate in many activities that may include reading stories, playing games, art, music, and cooking activities.
