For a Real Head Start in Life

Our Mission

Our Mission

Our mission is to instill responsibility and accountability while providing a friendly environment with a safe, fun, and enjoyable early learning experience that prepares students to be ready for school and life.

Infants

AGES 6 Weeks - 6 Months

Our commitment to early learning and education begins in our infant program with the partnership between our teachers and parents.

Our teachers help infants explore environments, both indoors and outdoors. Daily the infants receive “tummy time” with the teaching staff and foster grandmothers to support each infants development, so each infant develops a sense of what he or she is capable of doing. Teachers continually talk to the infants and/or play music to develop language and new ideas.

Toddlers

AGES 12 - 24 Months

As a benefit of participating in the Early Head Start partnership program your family will have access to family support services, training opportunities, and working one-on-one with your Parent and Child Advocate. This program is held in a newly renovated property located at 1120 Oliver Avenue in North Minneapolis, and works in partnership with La Crèche and PICA Headstart (Parents In Community Action).

Preschoolers

AGES 3 - 5 Years

Our Preschool kindergarten-readiness program uses an outcomes-based, learning experience approach to support children’s development of essential school-readiness skills. This comprehensive approach prepares children to enter kindergarten with the language, early literacy, mathematics, social/emotional, physical, and cognitive skills necessary to succeed.

School Age

AGES 5 - 13 Years

Our school-age program provides a happy, club-like atmosphere where children grow and receive homework support in all learning domains. The rhythm of the program takes into account each school-age child’s desire to form lasting friendships and to explore theme-related topics of interest.
