Child and Youth services in Baltimore
Head Start is a comprehensive pre-school education program designed to prepare low-income, children for academic success, and promote age-appropriate social skills. The program works in partnership with parents, extended family, and members of the community to offer developmentally appropriate education, health, case management and family support services to children and their families.
The Head Start program serves over 800 three and four-year-old children and their families at seven sites in Baltimore City. Head Start provides a structured program that includes daily academic instruction by certified early childhood educators using a curriculum approved by the Maryland State Department of Education. Each family is provided with case management and other services that support a healthy and stable family unit. Health screenings, nutrition services, and disability support services are also offered, and breakfast and lunch are provided daily. Parents play an active role in the program and are educated and coached on how to become their child’s primary educator and advocate.
