SCHOOL READINESS


The Office of Head Start states that Head Start is a school readiness program. Building upon this premise, ICS Head Start emphasizes and supports children's academic development, especially to significantly increase language development and to help preschoolers acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that predict later success in reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies as they enter kindergarten. For further information, please call 662-252-1582 ext. 107.

From the Desk of the  Executive Director

Parents are essential to the growth and development of their children.  Head Start offers new experiences and challenges to children and parents. As a parent, you are accustomed to making decisions to help your child grow, develop, and learn in appropriate ways. Head Start is designed to help you with this process.  It is our goal to provide you with information such as contained in this newsletter to make sound decisions. You will find ways to manage time and stress, child’s language development, and how to become an advocate for your child.

Remember all parents have to work to ensure the best possible experiences for their child.  It starts with you.  By working together, we can create positive Head Start experiences.
