Morris Head Start

Head Start believes that parents and guardians are a child’s first and best teacher and that you play a vital role in your child’s development and success.  We encourage you to interact in all aspects of your child’s experience in the program and to take advantage of opportunities such as field trips, parent groups, home visits, and policy council. Our staff - teachers, family partners, bus drivers, cooks and specialist - are here to support not only your child, but also your family, on the journey to a successful transition to kindergarten.
