I’ve been with the Head Start program for the past two years. I have two of my children going to the program.

I noticed that they have learned more through the past several years, and they learned how to socialize with their friends, they’ve learned a lot about arts and crafts, they’ve been well-prepared with their ABCs, with their numbers, with their shapes.

I already seen a big improvement in my first daughter, who she’s already in Kindergarten finishing up and the teacher said she was well-prepared, so I really recommend this program for anyone who’s interested in their kids learning, and being well-prepared.

I really want to thank the whole staff. The teachers, the social worker, and all the people that have been involved because they’ve been very helpful.

They have a lot of great workshops. And they really help moms to learn more about ways that you could help your kids to learn more at home.

So, I’m grateful that Zachary and Sophia Jover were part of the team, and I wish that, you know, if you have any kids that this [GBCA Head Start] will be the place that you bring them.
