Head Start

The Office of Head Start (OHS) helps young children from low-income families prepare to succeed in school through local programs. Head Start and Early Head Start programs promote children's development through services that support early learning, health, and family well-being.

Pre-Kindergarten

We expect more out of our Pre-kindergarten students 3, 4 & 5 yrs old .In this program we teach our children to be more independent. When your child enters into the Pre-K Program they will learn how to read, write, spell, recite the 50 states and the Lord's Prayer.   ​


We hope to support children through the following learning objectives:

  • Develop and foster an abiding curiosity
  • Develop habits of initiative and persistence
  • Develop sensory-motor skills in order to sharpen the ability to discriminate and judge
  • Develop social skills
  • Acquire the basic skills necessary for a lifetime of learning
  • Support each child's innate, ultimate potential through high self-expectations

Pajama Day!

Indoor and outdoor environments are settings that can be used to help children develop cognitive skills. Many of the concepts and relationships we want children to learn are already present in the environment at SEA.
