Head Start

"Helping Families Succeed"
Head Start is a federal program for income eligible children. In addition to the educational services, Head Start provides health, social services, nutrition, mental wellness, parent involvement, and disability services.

Region 10 Education Service Center in partnership with the local independent school districts serves children and their families.

Both the staff and children represent a variety of cultures and backgrounds, ensuring that children develop familiarity with a range of holidays, customs, and family activities.

Families and staff work together to provide high quality educational and developmental programs to prepare children for success in school. Parents provide leadership to the program through Policy Council. Parents are valued as participants and as volunteers!

Mission Statement:
"The Preschool Services Component of the Region 10 Education Service Center, together with school, families, and communities, collaborates to promote and support high quality programs and services for young children."

Dream Team
Dads are very important in the lives of their children. The D.R.E.A.M. (Dad, Reading, Education and Mentoring) program is specifically designed for dads and significant male role models to promote male involvement in the development of children. We have two fatherhood events a year. Males are encouraged to be part of the D.R.E.A.M. team.
