Giving Children a Head Start
In Georgia, there are currently 232,000 children from birth to the age of five living in poverty. Easterseals North Georgia offers hope and help to these at-risk children with their Early Head Start and Head Start Programs.
The Early Head Start & Head Start Programs
ESNG’s Head Start Program is a program of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, and it provides comprehensive early childhood education, health and nutrition programs, and parent involvement services to low-income families. We designed this program to enhance children’s physical and emotional well-being and to establish an environment for developing strong cognitive skills. The Head Start Program also fosters healthy and stable family relationships.
Both the Head Start and Early Head Start programs provide childcare and education to more than 1,500 young children and their families. We have well-trained teachers and Family Support Advocates on board to work with parents in providing academic and social-emotional preparation to infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Our goal is to give young children the tools and abilities they need to succeed in kindergarten.
Our program offers full-day services for children from birth to age five. If you are interested in enrolling your child in one of our early learning programs, please contact an Easterseals location near you.
