Empowering children and families to achieve a healthy, optimal and independent lifestyle.
A child's development begins in the earliest moments of life, with social and cognitive skills that affect their ability to enter school and succeed. Yet children from many low-income families are often not afforded the same opportunities to develop these skills as other children. Porter-Leath's Head Start programs -- Head Start for preschool children ages 3 to 5 and Early Head Start for children from birth to 3-- ensure these children develop to the best of their ability and receive all of the building blocks necessary to be successful in school. Porter-Leath Head Start offers a comprehensive combination of quality home-based family services and onsite educational programs completely free of charge.
