Why Should You Choose Us? 


At Cheaha Regional Head Start, our goals of school readiness for your child parellel your own.  As a community based non-profit program funded by generous donors, volunteers, and the Office of Head Start we can continuously focus on improvement and quality instead of profit margins.  

Enrolling in the Cheaha Regional Head Start program means you want your child to be ready for preschool and beyond. We adhere to federal and state standards for preschool education.  We encourage the role of parents as their child's first and most important teachers and build relationships with families that support positive parent-child relationships, family well-being, and connections to peers and community.


Our Head Start program supports the mental, social, and emotional development of children from age 3 to 5.  In addition to education services, we provide children and their families with health, nutrition, social, and other services.  Head Start services are responsive to each child and family's ethnic, cultural, and liguistic heritage.



At Drew Court Head Start during morning arrival on Tuesday, September 6, 2016, a stick bug was on the outside of the door of room B. The teachers collected the bug inside of a container, and; during outside play, they let the children collect dirt, leaves and sticks to place inside to form a habitat for the insect. After creating a habitat for the walking stick, the children collected sticks to make their own sticks bugs.  Today the children made their very own walking stick and displayed them on the wall.  Together they came up with the name Chase. Chase has been placed in the Science area for viewing.
