This year we are partnering with SOUTH COAST HEAD START
Supporting families with young children in their quest for a brighter future
South Coast Head Start, a program of Oregon Coast Community Action, promotes the school readiness of young children from low-income families. Birth to 5 programs support the mental, social, and emotional development of children. In addition to education services, we provide children and their families with health, nutrition, social and other services. SCHS encourages the role of parents as their child’s first and most important teachers. Central to all programming is the development of strong relationships with families that support positive parent-child relationships, family well-being, and connections to peers and the community. Our services are responsive to each child and family’s ethnic, cultural, and linguistic heritage and builds on the strengths of each individual.
In Reedsport, we currently offer one preschool classroom and one infant-toddler classroom, with space generously provided by the Reedsport School District. We are currently working to open another preschool classroom funded with Head Start and Preschool Promise grants. Funds raised from this project would support children’s learning and development with purchasing new classroom materials and supplies.
We will be collecting clean, empty bottles and cans before, during, and after the parade. We will also collect monetary donations.
