Vision Statement: “We provide the best in public service for children and families of Boulder County through an integrated approach to School Readiness.”
Boulder County Head Start promotes school readiness for children, ages birth to five, in families with low income by offering educational, nutritional, health, social, and other services. Head Start programs enhance the social and cognitive development of children and actively engage families in their children’s learning so that children will be successful in kindergarten.
The Head Start program began in 1965 during the Johnson administration as a summer program for children in poverty entering kindergarten. The Boulder County program began offering services that first year, and has been helping families since.
