Mobile Community Action is now enrolling families for its Head Start program for the upcoming school year.
Head Start serves nearly 1,500 low-income children ages 3-5 and their families. Head Start is open Monday through Friday, with 19 centers/sites throughout Mobile County and one in Washington County. Six of the sites are located in the Mobile County school system.
Through creative curriculum, children receive a variety of learning experiences to foster intellectual, physical, social and emotional growth.
A nutrition program provides daily breakfast, lunch and a snack. Health services provide complete medical, dental, hearing and vision screenings and follow-up treatments.
Special needs services provide skills that foster self reliance and develop positive self image in an inclusive environment. There are field trips to supplement the Head Start curriculum.
Head Start encourages the homeless to participate in the program. All Head Start services are free.
Head Start stresses that parental participation in the learning process of the child is a "must."
