Our own Ellen Russell, with 14 years of Head Start experience, said a huge change had taken place this school year.  Resources were shifted from centers to home visitation.  This was specifically targeting the 0-3 years old children, with the belief that theses early years are very important to ultimate outcomes.  The program has a special reading curriculum, includes pre-school practice, helps with parents education and builds resiliency skills. See the short video below on this final element. Parents are also taught to advocate for their children.  Head Start requires a 25% local match to the Federal funds, so please consider donating or volunteering.
