Testimonial From a Parent

“Patient. Kind. Attentive. Words that describe KidStart. Our son, Luke, has attended KidStart for two years and he has blossomed into such an amazing little boy. They have given him the confidence to do and try new things. They understand him and work with him so that he can be the best version of himself. KidStart has made such a difference in our lives and we will be forever grateful for them.”  Cassie Widener and Family

Head Start Program

Head Start programs promote the school readiness of infants, toddlers, and preschool-aged children from low-income families. Services are provided in a variety of settings including centers, family child care, and the children’s own home. Head Start programs also engage parents or other key family members in positive and goal-oriented relationships. Parents participate in leadership roles, including governance of program operations.
