Come at your scheduled time.  This will help keep your stay as short as possible. 

Head Start centers are scheduled to open for classes on Tuesday, August 14, 2018.  ICS will be holding a Meet and Greet for parents on Monday, August 13, 2018, so you may visit classrooms and meet the center director and teaching staff.  ICS welcomes you and highly encourages your participation in ICS parent activities.  Parents are encouraged to volunteer and participate in training/educational sessions such as Pre-service.



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.
