Head Start of Lane County Goal = Enthusiastic Learners
We want children to be enthusiastic learners. For example, they should be explorers. Children should try out their ideas and to think their own thoughts. Also, kids should be independent, self-confident, inquisitive learners. Thus, learn at your own pace and you will like to learn.
Our Main Goals for Your child
Social: To help children feel comfortable in school, trust their teachers, make friends, and feel they are a part of the group.
Emotional: To help children experience pride and self- confidence, develop independence and self-control, and have a positive attitude toward life.
Cognitive: To help children become learners by letting them try out their own ideas and experience success, and by helping them learn to solve problems, ask questions, and use words to describe their ideas, observations, and feelings.
Physical: To help children increase their large and small muscle skills and feel confident about what their bodies can do.
