Head Start promotes the school readiness of young children from low-income families through agencies in their local community. 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, programs provide 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.
Our programs at the ICS Oktibbeha County Head Start focus on school readiness for local children. We provide high quality , comprehensive services to over 200 children and their families in Oktibbeha County.
