Head Start


Head Start is a preschool program with a focus on early childhood development. Each classroom is taught by a degreed teacher using an individualized curriculum based on your child’s strengths, needs and interests. Each classroom was designed to promote creativity with convenient playgrounds. Centers in Waukesha and Oconomowoc.

Head Start

Not only do we have degreed teachers, but we have a number of other specialists on staff including: speech/language pathologist, family services staff, registered nurse, psychologist, chef, commercially licensed bus drivers and bilingual/bicultural Spanish-speaking staff.

Our staff

Meals and snacks are planned by a nutritionist and prepared by our chef and our nutrition staff. The children eat family-style in the classroom with their teacher and all meals and snacks are free. We also conduct FREE hearing, vision, height & weight screenings.
