WACOG Head Start is a child and family development program that provides a comprehensive early education curriculum that individualizes developmentally appropriate teaching services for young children, ages 0-4, and ensures children are ready for school, families are ready to support their children’s learning and schools are ready for children as they complete Head Start and prepare to enter Kindergarten.
Family engagement and community services are the underlying strengths of WACOG Head Start--strong and involved families equal strong and healthy children eager and ready to learn! Family Engagement Services encourage parent involvement in program decision-making opportunities, stresses the importance of parental engagement in their child’s education, link families to needed resources or training opportunities and emergency assistance if necessary. We provide an array of no-cost services for eligible, low-income families such as Child Health & Nutrition Services which ensure medical, dental, nutritional and developmental concerns are identified for all children and follow-up assistance is provided; and Disabilities Services
which ensure at least 10% of Head Start enrollment opportunities are available to children with diagnosed disabilities and that all children are educated in an integrated, developmentally appropriate setting.
