Early Childhood education in a center based format. The program is geared toward children aged three to five. The family meets federal poverty level qualifications. The program teaches the children the fundamentals of school readiness while addressing nutritional and developmental issues within the family. The family also receives case management services and connection to resources for improving the family's coping and parenting skills.
The purpose of this program is to give participants a "Head Start" on their educational path by preparing them for the first of many steps toward independence and self-sufficiency and to give the family appropriate nurturing and child development skills in their advocacy and support of their child.
BeauCARE Head Start strives to prepare preschool children and families to meet the needs and challenges of life. Our vision is to prepare children , families, and Head Start staff to be contributing members of the DeRidder Community by fully implementing the Head Start Performance Standards and the 2007 Head Start Act.
