Every Monday @  10:30 am – 11:30 am the Head Start Program would like to support families with infants and toddlers ages 0 – 4 years, by starting the week off with a hot breakfast. We will meet in a Mom and Dad’s group with our community nurse, Sarah Gamble, and coordinator Tabita Marks.  We would like to update your baby’s immunizations, ages and stages development of your child, and share on topics of interest with handouts. If you are in need of diapers, children’s clothing, children’s books, or access to a computer, please stop by anytime Monday – Friday.  You can open an account to use the computer by giving your birth date and name.

Every Tuesday @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am.  Since the weather is cold and wet, it’s time to take out the jumping castle for the little ones to play in the Kinder Gym!  There are ride on toys, bouncy balls, and homemade muffins and fruit for a snack.
