Inside Head Start
Bank Street Head Start’s mission is to empower and educate low-income families through a variety of comprehensive, high-quality services.
Our Educational Philosophy
We believe preschoolers learn by experimenting and exploring materials, as well as interacting with their peers under the guidance of highly qualified teachers. We work with all the domains of development with an emphasis on the social-emotional development vital to a positive kindergarten experience and long-term success in school.
Health & Nutrition
We partner with professionals and organizations that offer vision, hearing and dental screenings. We also employ a mental health professional and a nutritionist, who supports our excellent food program.
Parents play a vital role in their children’s education and development from birth, a role Bank Street Head Start builds upon by fostering parental involvement at every step. The program features, among other things, education for parents, parent-teacher conferences and family events.
