Head Start works with low-income families to engage the whole family in the educational process. During the 2015-2016 school year, 334 Early Head Start and Head Start parent volunteers contributed more than 97,736 hours of service. A particular area of success has been in the involvement of fathers in the program. We design activities and events to include dads and keep them engaged in their children’s education.
As a result, 97 percent of our Head Start graduates are kindergarten ready.
