Description

Migrant Seasonal Head Start


Program Information

The Migrant Seasonal Head Start (MSHS) program is one of the largest community based service providers in the nation, providing a wide range of services to more than 7,000 migrant children, ages six weeks to compulsory school age, and their families each year. The MSHS program provides education and support services to low-income children of migrant and seasonal farm workers and their families in Texas, Ohio, Indiana, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Iowa and Nevada. Our strategy mirrors the objectives of Head Start and Early Head Start in that we enhance children's growth and development, strengthen families as the primary nurturers and teachers of their children, provide children with educational, health and nutritional services and link children and families to needed community services.

Each center is administered by a center manager (CM) and staffed with Family Service Advocates (FSA), a Child Development Advocate (CDA), teachers, teaching assistants, transportation/custodial, and kitchen personnel. The administrative oversight of center operations is maintained by Regional Administrators (RA) and Program Area Coordinators (PAC). Regional Administrators implement work plans, utilizing a team management approach and philosophy that focuses on the children and their families.

Our program uses a grass roots approach to engage parents in the decision making process. This is conducted by using local Parents Center Committees (PCC), and a Parent Policy Council (PC) that meets on a monthly basis.

Our MSHS program provides center based services to migrant and seasonal children as their families prepare for the agricultural season in their home towns, they migrate to the different states to work the harvests and as they return back to their respective home towns at the conclusion of the harvest season.
