Preschool Head Start and ECEAP
Serves 3-5 year old children
OCCDA Head Start and ECEAP are comprehensive preschool programs for children and their families. We recognize the vital role parents play in giving their children opportunities to learn. Staff develop a partnership with parents in their child’s learning. Head Start and ECEAP emphasize and teach the importance of being healthy, eating nutritious foods, and staying safe; as well as providing information about literacy, employability, and meeting education goals. We provide high quality child development services and assess each child’s development and progress by implementing child outcomes and promoting school readiness.
In a classroom experience for 3 to 5 year old children (child must be 3 years old by August 31st of the current school year), each child is treated as a unique individual and allowed to grow and develop at his/her own rate. Children grow, learn, and develop through an enriched environment with caring staff who want them to succeed. Each classroom has between 16-18 children (depending on classroom size) with a teacher, assistant teacher, and class aide.
