Klamath Family Head Start - Our Programs
Health Exam & Screenings

Health Exams and Screenings

Through the national Head Start program, we are able to screen all students for hearing, vision, dental and nutritional issues. Then, our Head Start referral network works with families to ensure that medical and/or dental treatment is available for any child in need.

Child & Family Counseling Services

We believe in promoting positive social-emotional development through teaching and modeling: empathy, emotional regulation, and problem-solving.  We offer a full-time, in-house Licensed Child and Family Counselor who can provide clinical mental health services and counseling for children and their families. Our Counselor also helps our staff build skills around behavior and classroom management, to increase developmentally-appropriate practices and expectations.

Head Start Program Nutrition Services

Nutrition Services

We know a child’s physical health and wellbeing is vitally important for growth, learning, and lifelong success. In our classrooms, we provide healthful meals that meet your child’s daily nutritional needs, and give them opportunities to make their own healthy choices at school. Visit our Meals & Snacks page for current offerings in our centers.

Parenting and Family Services

Healthy social-emotional development (both at school and home) paves the way for wellness and readiness as children prepare to enter school.

We connect parents and families with community resources — including classes, workshops and group events — that teach child development, parenting skills and family involvement.
