Head Start and Early Head Start programs support the mental, social, and emotional development of children from birth to age 5. In addition to education services, CAP St. Joe Head Start provides children and their families with health, nutrition, social, and other services. Head Start services are responsive to each child and family’s ethnic, cultural, and linguistic heritage. Head Start encourages the role of parents as their child’s first and most important teachers. CAP St. Joe Head Start staff work to build relationships with families that support positive parent-child relationships, family well being, and connections to peers and community.
Early Head Start serves pregnant women, infants, and toddlers. Early Head Start programs are available to the family until the child turns 3 years old and is ready to transition into Head Start or another pre-K program. Early Head Start helps families care for their infants and toddlers through early, continuous, intensive, and comprehensive services.
