The CCHSBC staff recognizes that parents are the children’s first and most important teachers. They work closely with parents to help children ages 3 to 5 develop academic skills, as well as confidence, self-reliance and social skills. In addition, services are available to assist parents with developing and achieving personal, educational and employment goals for themselves and their family.
CCHSBC provides children with activities to help them grow mentally, socially, emotionally and physically. The curriculum promotes child-directed, hands-on learning that is reinforced by parents at home.
Children who attend our Head Start programs in Baltimore City participate in a variety of activities in all areas of child development. We offer a learning environment in which children can develop socially, intellectually, physically and emotionally. The Creative Curriculum promotes hands-on learning. A fundamental element of Head Start is providing basic health care for all children. Children and families also receive mental health services through the program and referrals to community-based providers.
Another important part of the program includes the identification and coordination of community resources that address the social, educational, health and economic needs of families. Each child receives at least one hot meal daily. Parents and children also receive hands-on nutrition education.
We offer your child love, acceptance, understanding, the opportunity to learn, and the opportunity to experience success.
