Head Start Beliefs
Cultural and religious beliefs are an important part of family life. Families have the opportunity to identify their beliefs at the time of acceptance. Adaptations are made according to what families identify. There are many items and activities in the classroom reflecting different cultures. We encourage you to share additional items and activities to demonstrate your famil's culture. Please help us in planning a program that meets your needs as a family and as a classroom group.
