os Angeles Urban League Head Start & State Preschool which was developed to ensure that minority children benefit from the same level of education and social skills and training as students in private Preschools.
Early Childhood Learning is critical in a growing childs success. Head start programs enhance childrens physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development and the Urban League offers assistance for parents to move towards self sufficiency and support for parents in their efforts to fulfill their parental roles.
Perhaps the most important component of the program is involving the parents in the childs development process. Head Start educates parents in all stages of child development and the responsibilities of healthy parenting.
With a staff of over 210 people, the Leagues Head Start programs consist of 30 educational sites, a central food preparation facility and an administrative office to service the students and parents needs.
Head Start is a federal program designed to help children from three to age five, who come from low income families. The goal of Head Start is to help children become ready for kindergarten, and to provide other necessities of life like health care and food support. Past President Lyndon Johnson approved Head Starts in 1965 as part of the War on Poverty. The Urban League is instrumental in continuing that fight.
