Head Start San Diego benefits your entire family
Thrive beyond your preschool years
Our head start programs in San Diego service children, families, and communities through quality school-readiness programs. Our close partnership with the family empowers individuals to achieve their full potential.
When I think of Head Start, I think of school readiness, and all the different characteristics and components that make that up. People think it’s just about math, and this, and English and play time – and it’s not. It’s about getting to the core of these kids and seeing what they need, and what’s important.

Why Head Start?
Compared to their peers, Head Start children are more likely to graduate high school, attend college, have a job and enjoy good health.
We offer comprehensive child development services for children 12 months to 5 years of age.
