Superior – Superior Head Start has many new students attending school for the first time. The next few weeks will help orient them to their new setting, through discussions centered on going to school, making friends, home and family routines, likenesses and differences. Students sit on the floor with their teacher and listen to stories. Soft gentle music is played to encourage everyone to relax.
The Head Start program “allows children to be children” through the use of play. It is inclusive to special needs students, and emphasizes cognitive and social-emotional development. Superior Head Start finds creative ways to enrich the minds of the children to prepare them for the Kindergarten experience that’s both fun and stimulating.
The children participate in various “centers” in the classroom where they are encouraged to take part in cooking projects, reading books with teachers, using computers, participating in problem solving activities, do art, music and perform science experiments, build with blocks, besides taking part in dramatic play activities using the curriculum.
