Special Notice to Head Start Families, Oct. 3, 2013: Recent news of the Federal Government shutting down has left many of us with unanswered questions. I understand your need for answers regarding the care and high quality pre-kindergarten education of your child. I want to reassure you that Kalamazoo RESA Head Start will continue to run our program as usual. The funding for Kalamazoo County's Head Start program is currently intact. The Head Start programs that have shut down in other parts of the country have different funding schedules. We're confident that we can continue providing great service to our families. Please be assured that we will keep you informed of any changes that could affect our program. Thank you for your patience and for working together with us to provide a high quality pre-k experience
for your child. -- Stephanie Lemmer, Administrator
Children learn through experience. In addition to math, reading, science, and art skills, Head Start students are taught about cooperation, problem solving, and responsibility. Head Start, which is for children age three and four years, nurtures the entire child by providing a meal and snack each day and helping the family arrange for medical services when needed. Staff members have early childhood education backgrounds and will give your child individual attention.
School is Monday through Thursday in either a full-day, morning or afternoon session at a preschool site. Head Start for Kalamazoo County is available at multiple locations and provides bus transportation to many sites.
