To guide families on the pathway to hope, change, and independence through community collaboration that promotes family pride, respect, and responsibility.
In partnership with parents and the community, Palo Verde Head Start helps families connect to comprehensive services for eligible children three to five and their families. These programs provide a foundation for early childhood education, parental awareness, training in the areas of children's health, growth, and development, and ensures an environment of responsive care giving that leads toward school readiness.
We encourage self-sufficiency, growth, and independence for all children and families within their community, as well as acceptance and respect for diversity.
Palo Verde Head Start's philosophy is to provide a program in the classroom that helps children grow: physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally.
Our staff provides a variety of classroom and outdoor learning experiences that help children express themselves creatively. Children are encouraged to discover and solve problems through interactions with adults, peers, and their environment.
Palo Verde Head Start promotes school readiness.
