Save Head Start

Head Start is an amazing educational experience for children from 3-5 years old!

Head Start has helped so very many children. Without this program, many children that come from low income households will not have a pre-school environment, to prepare them for kindergarten. Although, cutting this program may save money NOW, what about the job loss, not only inside the Head Start, but for many business' and vendors that deliver to these schools? The loss of this program will have a huge ripple effect across our nation. Please consider this and help our children receive the many benefits that come with being a Head Start kid!

Low income families deserve to have a quality first start for their children.

Please consider the consequences and reconsider the cut to Head Start programs, as this would prevent low income families from receiving quality early education services. Remembering that while attending Head start children are learing ,playing and socializing with there friends.

I am a head start teacher. I see first hand how much we help families in need. It would be a shame to defund something so wonderful.

I am a teacher at Head Start and I get to see the impact we have on not only the children we serve but also their families. Our program helps so many and if we continue to lose funding these children and families lose too.

I am a head start teacher and every day I see how head start not only helps the children in my classroom but the families as well. On a personal level my son went to head start and again I saw and still see how he benefits from head start. Every day I see the need and importance for head start and it is critical that we continue to keep our head starts open for the children and families in need.

I have been teaching g at Head Start for nearly fifteen years. I have seen so much need for the children and families over the past years and it has only gotten worse. If funding continues to decrease and we loose more Head Starts, our children risk the chance for successful futures. They loose a safe haven for the few hours they are given each day from us. We ask you, Congress, please help and fight for the children, the families and our communities. They all need us.
