Head Start

Head Sart Sign in Norwalk

Head Start programs provide high-quality pre-kindergarten education for children of eligible families who are 3 years old until they enter kindergarten at no cost. Head Start programs support children and their families by providing services to support the health, development, and family well-being of all students. Head Start's highly qualified early educators prepare children for success in kindergarten and their futures beyond that through a curriculum that emphasizes school-readiness skills of literacy, numeracy, and social-emotional skills while providing parents with the tools they need to help them gain confidence in their parenting skills and assistance in navigating the complex world of available social services. With a ratio of 2 teachers for every 20 students, every child receives the level of individualized attention they need to succeed.
