Mission Statement

  • Our Mission Statement

    Recognizing that the parent is the child’s first teacher, the
    Dothan City Schools Head Start Preschool program’s goal is
    to involve the parent in planning, developing, and
    implementing the curriculum to assure reinforcement at
    home for the goals and objectives.

    We believe:
    -That children, staff and families must work cooperatively
    to meet the needs of each child, while respecting family
    values and heritage.
    -Each family should be encouraged to strive for self-sufficiency.
    -A partnership between families, communities, and Head
    Start will create a network that will ensure the success of
    each child.
    -That creating school readiness goals for students will
    allow them to fulfill their unique potential and prepare
    them for kindergarten.
