Head Start is a comprehensive program that provides children and families with information and access to education, health, mental, nutrition, family goal setting, prenatal education and resources.

Children are provided with developmental screenings in the areas of education, sensory, vision, hearing and disabilities. Children with a suspected or diagnosed developmental delay are referred to the Port Angeles School District for further evaluation or services.

They receive initial dental services, and parents/caregivers are offered services in child development, health education, advocacy, and, through a cooperative agreement with Peninsula College, each parent attending (Family Nights) can sign up for two credits per quarter that can be used as electives for those pursuing degrees.
