The MSU Extension Head Start program in Harrison County strives to promote the optimal development of each child and his or her family through positive learning experiences and high-quality service.
Louise Davis, Extension professor in the MSU School of Human Sciences, said the Head Start program leverages community partnerships and research-based methods to serve children at their youngest and most vulnerable stage in life.
“Our goal is to create a seamless chain of service for children so they can easily transition from early care and education settings to kindergarten,” Davis said. “We believe that high-quality early childhood experiences and strong relationships between families and communities are essential in laying a foundation for school success.”
