Head Start

Licking Valley Head Start provides comprehensive child development services for low income three and four year olds  to prepare them for success in kindergarten and beyond. With seven Head Start centers located throughout the region, LVCAP is able to serve 325 children each year.

The four major components of Head Start are:

  • Education – The Educational Program is individualized to meet each child’s needs. Every child receives a variety of learning experiences to foster intellectual, social, and emotional growth. Head Start also subcontracts with Fleming and Robertson Boards of Education to provide KERA-Preschool services for eligible 3 and 4 year old children.
  • Health – Head Start arranges for every child to receive comprehensive health screenings, including: medical, dental, mental health, and nutrition services.
  • Parent Involvement – An essential part of every Head Start Program is the involvement of parents in Parent Education program planning and operating activities. Recognizing that the parent is the child’s first and best teacher, all parents are encouraged to volunteer in the classroom so they can reinforce learning at home while they develop their own child development skills.
  • Social Services – Services are provided that will build upon individual strengths (both the child and parents) to meet their needs.  Children with disabilities are targeted for services and receive the full range of Head Start developmental services in the least restrictive environment possible.
