CESA 7 Head Start 0-5


Our Mission

Building connections since 1965 - the mission of the CESA 7 Head Start 0-5 is to nurture children and empower families, creating the foundation to be successful in school and life by providing high quality, comprehensive supports focused on early education, health services, and family services in partnership with our Head Start Community.

HEAD START 0-5 is a comprehensive program designed to promote continuous growth and development of children and families with a focus on school readiness and family wellness. The program serves prenatal mothers and children ages 0-5 primarily from low-income families and also serves children with special needs.

HEAD START 0-5 is a federally and state-funded program that allows the program to be entirely free to the families who qualify. Head Start 0-5 encourages parents to become involved with all program activities.
