Description

HEAD START   
Head Start classes are free, federally funded programs designed to promote school readiness for preschoolers from families that meet income eligibility requirements. The programs encourage family involvement through regular visits to the child’s home and provide opportunities for families to volunteer in the programs and participate in special activities to support their child’s learning. Staff and teachers help link children and families to other services in the community, such as free medical and dental care services, food resources, and mental health services. Head Start programs also support children with identified needs (such as physical and developmental delays), children in foster care, and children experiencing homelessness. A great majority of children in our New Rochelle Head Start classrooms come from Spanish speaking homes.  The program has bilingual teachers in each classroom to support children’s speech and language development in both English and Spanish, and to best connect with families.   
SPECIAL CLASS IN INCLUSIVE SETTING (SCIS)    
Children with an Individualized Educational Program (IEP) learn alongside their typically developing peers.
