Head Start is a low-income program designed to give children, including those with special needs, an early start on their education and families assistance to become their child’s advocate in the educational and medical systems.

Program standards ensure children have the skill set, are healthy and receive any special services they may require so that they are successful well beyond their Head Start years.

Parents are provided with services to assist them with their own needs. They are also encouraged to take part in every aspect of the program including observing their children in the classroom, volunteering, attending parent meetings, serving on Policy Council and trainings, give input in program planning and the opportunity to develop family and child goals.

Since, Ohkay Owingeh Head Start is Federally funded. The program is required to comply with all the Federal standards, including those concerning income. This means that not every child may be accepted into the program, as priority is given to children from low-income families, to enrolled tribal members of Ohkay Owingeh, and to children with special needs.
