Henry Head Start is located in the heart of the city and easily accessible. We are close to downtown and bus routes. We are an extended year site and have six classrooms; 5 preschool classrooms and 1 infant/toddler classroom.

Our site has the advantage of having two observation rooms, a wonderful multipurpose room for meetings and gross motor activities, along with an outdoor playground for the kids to explore. Our teachers are highly educated individuals who love children. We offer a fantastic education for the children along with training opportunities for the parents. We have a great partnership with the parents and community. We invite you to come and take a tour of our facility. Here you will find everything an early childhood center has to offer. Hope to see you soon!
