Head Start

Head Start programs provide a learning environment that supports children’s growth in many areas while emphasizing the role of parents as their child’s first and most important teacher.

The universally acclaimed Head Start program—offering, high-quality, early childhood education—was launched in 1964 by the federal Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO).

Through a robust array of services, the program helps to ensure that disadvantaged children enter school prepared to succeed. By addressing a child’s social and cognitive development, the program promotes school readiness, while fostering a love for reading and learning.

By virtue of its measureable success, Head Start serves as a model for early childhood initiatives nationwide and across the globe. Tallatoona CAP, Inc. has operated the Head Start program in our service area since 1965, providing low-income children and their families with the following services—all designed to ensure a successful experience in school, and beyond!

  • Education
