Our Services

Head Start helps get your child ready for school with educational activities that fit with your culture and language. Your child will learn in the way that is best for them.

Our staff works with you to create family goals and make a plan to meet those goals. We also help you find more resources in your community. 

Eating well fuels growing minds and bodies! We provide healthy meals and snacks, and evaluate each student’s nutritional needs. We also work with our families to encourage healthy choices and provide resources for home. 

We screen every child to understand their unique needs. Children with special needs are included in all activities, and our staff help connect families to the resources that can best support their children. 

Head Start relies on family and community members to strengthen its programs. Our Parent Policy Council serves as a decision and policy making body for our Head Start program in conjunction with LA County Office of Education’s Board of Education.
