PPS Head Start
Portland Public Schools Head Start serves 760 low-income three- and four-year-old children and their families. The goal of Head Start is to prepare young children for successful transitions to kindergarten and beyond by building social competence and developing school readiness skills. We accomplish this by enhancing children's growth and development, both physically and emotionally. We provide families and children with educational, health and nutritional services, linking them to needed community services. We ensure that all parents have opportunities for involvement in their child’s education and program decision making.”
PPS Head Start is now accepting applications for children who will be 3 or 4 by September 1, 2021!
