Save the Children Head Start

     Save the Children Head Start operates on two sites, one in Jennings and one in Elton and provides developmentally-appropriate programs for three year-olds. From the very start of a child’s life, Save the Children provides families with comprehensive, high-quality early childhood education and support services that focus on early language development and literacy. In addition, we support children’s healthy development and growth through nutrition and physical activity lessons as well as family literacy and education services. Save the Children brings its best to Head Start programs, including additional training for staff, extra resources like books and equipment, an experienced staff that pursues program excellence, and a well-established organizational support system. STC Head Start accepts three and four year-olds whose families qualify for services. They now are able to serve infants and toddlers with currently a limit of sixteen children.
