Head Start provides an array of comprehensive, quality services, including health, nutrition, parent support, education, and mental health, to children ages three to five and their families. The program’s vision is “each child and family leaves Head Start healthy, eager to learn, and ready for success.” Program staff work closely with families to ensure that each child has the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in kindergarten. The Early Head Start program provides services to infants, toddlers, and pregnant women in Torrington and Winsted through home visiting and socialization.
