About Head Start
headline 2 space
Since 1965, Head Start has been preparing children for kindergarten and helping them develop the skills to become life–long learners. The federally funded program serves children in low–income families as well as children with diagnosed disabilities in the areas of school readiness, nutrition, medical, social and other services through class time and home visits.
The CSI Head Start/Early Head Start program is a community of children, families, staff, volunteers and resource people working together to enhance an environment of learning and growing for children and their families. Parent involvement is essential to the existence and function of the program. Parents and staff work together to create an atmosphere of caring, support, trust and respect that nurtures the development of the whole child.
The College of Southern Idaho Head Start/Early Head Start program is committed to providing quality and comprehensive services in order to ensure the school readiness and healthy development of children while strengthening the families within our communities, ultimately helping children become self-reliant and life-long learners.
