About Head Start

Head Start is a Pre-K program that facilitates young children’s learning through experience. The program runs from September to June and is offered at 12 locations around Kalamazoo County. Head Start provides children with learning activities that focus on social/emotional, physical, and intellectual growth, as well as early math and literacy skills. It also offers services for the families of enrolled children. These services support parents in their role as a child’s first teacher since doing so helps to strengthen family ties. Head Start focuses on the developmental needs of the child and family. Program options include half day and full day programming Monday – Thursday, and extended day programming Monday - Friday.  Availability of program options varies by site.  Kalamazoo RESA Head Start provides bus transportation to many sites.
