NMCAA Head Start we offer several different program options designed to meet family needs. Each option may have a different look, but all share the common goal of assisting parents to be their child’s first and most important teacher. Parent Involvement is the key factor in producing long term outcomes for families enrolled in the program.
Parents are actively involved by volunteering, attending relevant training and participating in the planning, budgeting and staff selection process. Each child enrolled is assessed individually in both cognitive and emotional domains to foster the greatest possibility for later school success. They also receive medical and dental services. Sound nutritional habits are developed on a daily basis. Head Start works with other community resource providers to ensure the needs of each family is met.
Families with children of all abilities are encouraged to apply.
