CEEN Head Start recognizes that children have individual rates of development as well as different interests, cultural backgrounds, and learning styles. Our curriculum supports the need for individualized activities, helps to build social relationships, enhances the child’s understanding of self, and provides for the development of kindergarten readiness skills.
The Health Area works in collaboration with various agencies to provide a broad range of medical and dental services. Health and nutrition education is provided to parents to promote sound physical child development.
CEEN Head Start promotes the philosophy of mental wellness. A Mental Health Consultant schedules regular visits to each classroom and individual services are available for Head Start children and their families as needed.
CEEN Head Start encourages children with disabilities to enroll into Head Start. Throughout the program year, CEEN Head Start screens and observes all children to identify any special needs. CEEN Head Start arranges services to be provided for children with disabilities at no cost to the parents.
Family Partnerships/Parent Involvement
CEEN Head Start considers parents an integral part of the total staff. Parent participation is encouraged in the decision-making process of their children’s education, as well as decisions concerning the overall planning of the program. We support them in their role as parents, and jointly develop goals for their children
CEEN offers a literacy program at several locations or through referrals to other agencies.
Community Partnerships work directly with various social agencies to obtain needed assistance for families, and provide them with social services and educational training, to enable them to improve the quality and condition of their lives.
