Our Beliefs

Our Organizational Core Beliefs

To communicate Region 9 Head Start Association values and to hone our organizational effectiveness and prioritization, we articulate our organizational beliefs within each of our lines of work:

We believe that:

  • Every child, regardless of circumstances at birth, deserves an opportunity to succeed in school and life.
  • Parents who meet their own goals and regularly engage in their child’s education as volunteers help ensure that the learning process is a success.
  • Becoming informed about effective practices and alternative strategies for a child’s nurturing at home and in school empowers program staff, community partners and volunteers engaged in the Head Start community.
  • When children’s physical, social, emotional and cognitive development are nurtured, they become capable adults.
