  • Develop a sense of trust and security
  • Identify and solve problems
  • Express thoughts and feelings appropriately
  • Think critically
  • Increase self-confidence
  • Respect the feelings and rights of others
  • Use creativity and imagination
  • Work independently and with others
  • Develop preschool academic confidence

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.
