Mathis: Getting a 'Head Start' with Metropolitan Family Services
Jayden, Mason, Maritza and Jacob lived in different quadrants of DuPage County, but they all had something in common.
They were full of anticipation, waiting for Tuesday, Sept. 3 to get here so they could begin pre-school. On that special day, more than 600 children experienced what is sure to be one of life’s most memorable moments – the first day of not just any pre-school, but Head Start.
Head Start is a comprehensive program that promotes the school readiness of children from low-income families from birth to age 5 by enhancing their cognitive, social and emotional development. In addition to educational services, Head Start provides health, nutrition and social services.
