Yveddi Head Start

Head Start is a federally funded program whose goal is to prepare children ages 3-5 for school by providing a quality, safe-learning environment within a structured educational setting and is the only local preschool program that offers health, dental, social services and a comprehensive parent involvement program. Services are provided in Davie, Stokes, Surry, and Yadkin Counties to 385 children and include nutritious meals and snacks and developmentally appropriate activities. Medical and Dental services are provided (including payment, if needed, for healthcare, dental exams and follow-up). Parents have the opportunity to partner with teachers to develop their child’s plans for learning, develop and revise program policies, and approve staff hiring and firing decisions. Inclusion of children with special needs, professional staff, referral services and literacy is also provided. Families must meet Federal income guidelines to qualify.

Head Start also partners with the NC Pre-K program in 17 classrooms. The additional funding allows Head Start to extend its operational days of service from 160 to 180 days, pay for higher qualified teachers, and reduce teacher/child ratios from 1:10 to 1:9 or class size from 20 to 18 children.

YVEDDI Head Start believes that all children deserve the opportunity to learn through play by way of facilitated, competent early childhood practices without regard to race, culture, income, or disability. We also believe by linking services and building partnerships within the community our families will achieve more success.
