Head Start Mission
Fond du Lac Head Start is dedicated to nurturing the spirit of the child by celebrating diversity and life-long learning.
Head Start Philosophy
Fond du Lac Head Start programming is based on the philosophy that all children share certain needs. The need for social, physical and emotional interaction in learning together how to problem solve.
The child's entire family, including extended family, is encouraged to be involved. Head Start programs will strive to meet each family and child's individual needs.
Our goal is to enhance social competence in each child's everyday learning in how to succeed in his/her living environments and making positive choices in their nutritional, health and safety needs. We encourage self-confidence and spontaneity and provide the tools necessary for the sense of dignity within the child to flourish.
