Welcome to Kentwood Head Start, located next to the Kentwood fire station near 52nd and Eastern. Kentwood Head Start is an extended year site and has one full-day 3-year-old classroom and two 4-year-old classrooms. We have an awesome staff of highly qualified teachers and teacher assistants along with a site supervisor.

Our Preschool program supports the well-being and development of children from ages 3 to 5 years old by focusing mainly on education, nutrition, medical/dental care, and parent involvement. We understand that children learn through experience and we strive to nurture the whole child in our preschool program in addition to math, reading, science, social studies and art skills.

We invite and offer our Head Start parents and families to be involved in our program because “Parents are their child’s first teachers” and we feel that working together can help support positive outcomes for your students.
