Camp Washington Early Learning Academy
Our Head Start program promotes school readiness of children ages birth to five by supporting the development of the whole child. Our programs seeks to enrich the lives of our families while strengthening self-sufficiency. Head Start helps all children succeed, supporting children’s growth and development in a positive learning environment. We offer services to meet the special needs of children with disabilities. Services are also available to infants and toddlers at selected sites.
We take a comprehensive approach to meeting the needs of young children. There are four major components to Head Start:
Education: Providing a variety of learning experiences to help children grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally.
Health: Providing health services such as immunizations, dental, medical, and nutritional services, such as healthy meals and snacks; mental health services and early identification of health problems. We also provide safe indoor and outdoor environment for play.
Parent Involvement: Involving parents in the planning and implementation of activities. Parents serve on policy councils and committees that make administrative decisions; participate in classes and workshops on child development; and volunteer in the program.
Social Services: Provide outreach to families to determine what services they need.
