Head Start Philosophy

It is the basic philosophy that people can be influenced by the world in which they find themselves. If the environment is lacking in any area, such as health, nutrition, education, etc. then full growth cannot occur.  Therefore, we at the Community Action Commission of Belmont County Head Start, desire to provide to the children, parents, staff and community, a program that supports growth and development for the ages and stages of development of all those involved. By providing a broad range of services, experiences, training and support, a person involved can grow into a more confident, secure, healthy and experienced human being.
