Children love to learn new things and it’s easier for them to learn when they are healthy. Head Start and parents work together to maintain and improve a child’s health through assuring up-to-date immunizations, well-child exams, dental exams and with vision and hearing screenings.
Eating is a pleasure and a necessity. Head Start provides a variety of new foods for the children to experience. Serving meals and snacks family style gives children the opportunity to practice passing and pouring skills, table conversation and manners. Breakfast and lunch are served at morning sessions and lunch and snack are served at afternoon sessions in centers. Home base sites serve a snack.
