RMDC HEAD START

Strong Families, Successful Children.

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

As their child’s first teacher the role of the parent(s)/guardian(s) is to nurture, protect, and prepare their child for social and academic success.

 

Children learn in an environment that honors the whole child, appreciates and respects individual differences, and promotes a sense of safety, belonging, and worth.

 

The role of staff is to honor and support the parent(s)/guardian(s) and child, promote healthy relationships, treat all with respect, and provide developmentally appropriate learning experiences for both parents/guardians and children.

 

We must work in partnership with the community to create bridges between needs and resources and to promote a sense of shared responsibility for the welfare of low-income children and families.

 

OUR VISION

To be a leading child and family development center working with Head Start families and community partners in Lewis and Clark, Broadwater, and Jefferson counties, to promote healthy life choices and develop skills necessary for academic and social success.

 

OUR MISSION

To be a supportive and safe learning environment for children and families by enhancing their sense of belonging and self-worth while encouraging them to reach their highest potential.
