our mission is to foster safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate services to children. we aim to empower families to meet their goals and prepare for self-sufficiency. we strive to mobilize our community to provide the necessary resources ensuring comprehensive, integrated and supportive services.
CFC Head Start and Early Head Start are comprehensive child development programs whose focus is the child and family. They encompass the areas of Education, Health, Disabilities, Nutrition, Family Services, and Transportation. We currently serve expectant parents and children up to the age of 5.
Head Start and Early Head Start believe the development of a young child is unique. Each day holds new discoveries as children become aware of the world around them. Children enrolled in the programs are offered a variety of experiences allowing them to explore and discover.
Exploration and play are a young child’s work. They are naturally busy and curious. Our basic philosophy of learning through doing is carried out in all phases of the child’s day. For example, meals are served family style, children brush their teeth, build with blocks, create their own art work, and go on field trips, to learn through their experiences.
There is also an emphasis on parent involvement. Parents are encouraged to volunteer in the classroom, participate in Discovery Days and attend Parent Committee and Policy Council meetings so they are able to actively participate in their child’s education.
