Marshall Early Childhood Center is currently accepting new students for its Head Start program.
Head Start is a 12-county program through the Region 7 Education Service Center providing comprehensive services to children ages birth – 5 years from low income families. In addition, the Early Head Start program design includes center based options and home based services for pregnant moms. All enrolled students receive a physical examination, immunizations, lead screening, vision exam, developmental and hearing screenings, and dental care.
Head Start recognizes that parents and families are the strongest supporters of their children and encourages involvement as their children’s advocates. Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their education do better in school. By law, Head Start programs must help parents and families support their children as they enter Early Head Start or Head Start, and as they transition from Head Start to kindergarten, another preschool program, or a child care setting.
Head Start explores opportunities for parents of students to expand their education, find or get a better job, and tap into support groups where parents and family members encourage each other.
