Head Start
Head Start’s purpose is to promote the education, health, culture, and well-being of our children, families, and communities. As its names suggests, the program is designed to give children a head start at learning the skills useful for later success in school and life. BBNA offers Head Start services to 101 children age three to five and their families in Togiak, New Stuyahok, Manokotak, Dillingham and at the most recently opened center in Naknek. Services are family-centered, in the belief that children grow and learn in the context of their family and culture, and in respect for parents’ role as the primary educators and nurturers of their children. A child’s eligibility for Head Start is determined by family income. On a per capita basis, enrollment here is more than four times the national average. FYI: Head Start Organization Chart (PDF)
