About Us

Head Start/Early Head Start is a comprehensive early childhood development program designed to provide education, health and social services to low income children, ages 0-5 and their families.

Maricopa County Head Start emphasizes on pre-reading, language, math and other cognitive skills, while continuing to promote children's health, social and emotional competence as part of school readiness.

Services to children are provided by qualified and well-trained teachers in a classroom setting with a low student-teacher ratio. The low ratio allows us to make a significant and meaningful impact on the educational and social development of the children that we serve.

Maricopa County Head Start Zero-Five Program Mission: We commit to provide high quality child development and family support services to children and families that enhance each child’s cognitive, physical, emotional, and social well-being through a family-centered and nurturing environment.

Maricopa County Head Start Zero-Five Program Vision: All children, zero to five years of age, will be healthy, live with nurturing families who support and promote their child’s overall development, and have opportunities to participate in enriching experiences to prepare them for future success in school and life.
