Head Start Parent
“I like the teachers and the teachers helpers, the nurses take care of your kids…. They find viable Solutions for the parents. The program works with the parents to give us tools we can use. I love the ESL program. I’ve taken three classes with them, I even work as a volunteer...They educate the children, they teach them respect and they teach them routine. It’s truly a program that is complete and helps everyone; the parents just as much as the children. The program is not only complete but very practical.”
