At the West Las Vegas Head Start, we specialize in understanding the needs and development of preschool-age children, and we are there for both children and parents. We provide a quality preschool experience that is unparalleled.
Through the eyes of a preschool child, the world is a mysterious place filled with magic and wonder. Life revolves around play, exploration and imagination. They are quickly learning what they like and what they don’t like, and just who makes them feel safe. It is a special time of life. It is a time you should cherish.
Life for the parents of preschool age children isn’t so romantic. They often spend their days running on too little sleep while coping with an endless string of questions from a child with seemingly boundless energy. It is wonderful watching your child grow into a little person, but it is also a bit unsettling.
You have a child filled with potential, curiosity and capacity for achievement, but you also worry for them. Are they ready for the world? Can they keep up?
Developing little minds
A child’s brain isn’t fully developed at birth; it continues to develop and grow throughout preschool years. Some activities are helpful to development and some are harmful. At the West Las Vegas Head Start, we are trained to know the difference and give your child challenges, activities and limits that are appropriate for their stage of development.
Because getting them ready for school is more than just combing their hair and brushing their teeth.
Developing social skills
At Head Start, your child will be surrounded by other children in a controlled and safe environment as they learn valuable life lessons like sharing, taking turns, respect, and dealing with frustration. Our staff can begin teaching your child lessons and establishing positive behaviors that will be with your child for a lifetime.
Developing little bodies
In Head Start, playground equipment, toys, puzzles, games, activities and even nutrition are tailored to helping your child develop physically, including those with special needs. Head Start children are served nutritious food as well as given a checkup by a Doctor and a Dentist. Each child’s progress, coordination and agility are measured and monitored.
