Education

Head Starts goal is to provide an environment filled with people, objects and experiences that stimulate each child's curiosity and learning. We encourage each child to develop his/her own unique pattern of interests, talents and skills. While we recognize that as each child grows and develops at different rates, their individual goals will help them in school readiness.

Clam digging

Every child in our program is an individual, with different interests, skills, strengths and needs. Our goal is to get to know as much as possible about each and every child so that we can utilize guided learning and plan experiences that are just right. To do this we use an authentic, ongoing, observation based assessment system to gather information on each child's development and learning. This program is called Teaching Strategies GOLD

 

Development and Screening

Head Start believes that early intervention makes it possible for children with special needs to be identified and their individual educational needs to met...

Within the first 45 days your child will participate in Dial 4 screening. Each child is screened in the areas of Speech, Language, Thinking and Hearing, Motor, and Social and Emotional development. Parents are notified if further assessment is needed in any of these areas.

Children who are referred for additional assessment are referred to the North Kitsap School District Child Find
