Georgia Head Start and Early Head Start programs provide comprehensive early childhood and family development services to children from birth to 5-years-old, pregnant women and families. These programs have a long tradition of delivering comprehensive and high quality services designed to foster healthy development in low-income children and their families.
Head Start agencies like the Randolph County Board of Edcuation provide a range of individualized services in the areas of education and early childhood development; medical, dental, and mental health; nutrition; parent involvement and family support. In addition, the entire range of Head Start services is responsive and appropriate to each child's and family's developmental, ethnic, cultural, and linguistic heritage and experience.
All Head Start and Early Head Start programs must adhere to federal Program Performance Standards. These standards, which are the most rigorous and comprehensive early childhood program standards in the country, define the services that programs are to provide to the children and families they serve and are designed to ensure that the Head Start goals and objectives are implemented successfully and that all agencies maintain the highest possible quality in the provision of Head Start services.
