Many of us have heard of Head Start, but we don’t always have a full understanding of what they do. Guest host Barbra Porter sits down with the directors of the Mid-America Head Start program to discuss their focus on not only ensuring children are ready to learn when they enter school but also on its services for nutrition, health and family support.
Mid-America Head Start and Early Head Start serve more than 3,000 infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers in Clay, Jackson and Platte counties in Missouri. We are dedicated to improving the well-being of low-income families by working with each family to identify their specific needs.
