Dear Parent or Guardian,


➦ Do you have a child ready to join us at Head Start?

The Louisa Head Start center is currently accepting applications from 3 and 4 year old children for the 2018-2019 school year! (Note: If your child will be 3 before August 1, 2018, they are eligible!)

The Head Start program promotes school readiness of children by supporting their mental, social, and emotional development, and providing resources to assist parents, guardians, and family members.

Louisa Head Start provides an intimate, family-style setting to gently ease each child into the structured learning environment awaiting them in the public school system. The center is a nurturing and positive space, with a staff focused on facilitating growth and a love of learning. All children receive health and developmental screenings, nutritious meals, as well as oral health and mental health support. Additionally, parents and families are supported in achieving their own goals, such as housing stability, continued education, and financial security.
