Child Development Services


The overall objective of child development services is to provide all children with a safe, nurturing, engaging, enjoyable and secure learning environment to help them gain the awareness, skills and confidence necessary to succeed in their eduation.

WACOG Head Start endorses the tenet that each child must be treated as an individual in an inclusive community that values, respects and responds to diversity. The variety of experiences provided by the program support the continuum of children's growth and development, including the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of each child. The program's approach to child development insures the developmental and linguistic appropriateness of children's activities; and recognizes children have individual rates of development as well as individual interests, temperaments, languages, cultural backgrounds and learning styles.

This is accomplished through the use of comprehensive curricula materials, including the use of various materials, activities and experiences that support a broad range of children's prior experiences, maturation rates, learning styles, needs, cultures and interests.

A variety of screening procedures are conducted within 45 calendar days of children's entry into the program and done in collaboration with parents. The purpose of screening is to identify any parental or teacher concerns regarding a child's development, sensory (visual and auditory), behavioral, motor, language, social, cognitive, perceptual and emotional skills. Screening materials are linguistically and age appropriate and to the greatest extent possible, sensitive to the child's cultural background.
