Mission Statement

Citizens for Citizens Head Start & Early Head Start’s (CFC) mission is to foster safe, nurturing, and developmentally appropriate services to children. We aim to empower families to meet their goals and prepare for self-sufficiency. We strive to mobilize our community to provide the necessary resources to ensure comprehensive, integrated, and supportive services.

Philosophy of Education

Head Start promotes the school readiness of children ages of birth to 5 by enhancing their cognitive, social, emotional, physical development. We use an individualized and developmental approach to early childhood education that builds upon the child’s strengths, needs, and interests. The children learn through exploration and discovery and through their own experience to ensure that learning concepts are meaningful to the children.
