Head Start & Early Head Start
Free high quality early childhood education for low-income families
ITAV is recognized for exceptionalism in early childhood education for all families regardless of background or ability to pay.
Head Start (HS) and Early Head Start (EHS) services and resources are designed to foster stable family relationships, enhance children’s physical and emotional well-being, and establish an environment to develop strong cognitive skills. The transition from preschool to elementary school
imposes diverse developmental challenges that include requiring children to engage successfully with their peers outside the family network, adjust to the space of a classroom, and meet the expectations the school setting provides.
14 years have passed since my story with ITAV began. I am so grateful to the ITAV family for allowing my three daughters and me to be part of their great family. There have been great moments and memories that will always remain in my mind. Thank you ITAV for your support and commitment.
My toddler’s face lights up with excitement every time we are approaching his school. It gives me a great sense of comfort knowing that he is in great hands while I am away from him.
ITAV’s teachers are truly a third parent in raising our kids and an essential part of our family! We not only lean on them for childcare, we turn to them for emotional support as parents, laughs after a stressful day at work, and honest feedback about what our kids need that we might be missing.
After receiving my Childhood Development Associate credential through the Early Childhood Workforce program at ITAV, I realized how much I love learning about children and think I want to pursue getting my Masters in Child Development.
