Head Start Philosophy

Our philosophy focuses on promoting school readiness through positive social and educational skill development in our children. DCPC provides health, educational, nutritional, social and other services to children and families who request support in these areas.

DCPC encourages literacy activities between parents and their children and recognizes parents as their child's primary teacher in their social and educational development.

Teachers in partnership with parents, encourage children to develop self-confidence and a belief in their abilities to succeed.

DCPC believes in encouraging children to develop curiosity, spontaneity, and self-discipline, all of which will help to develop their self-esteem, social skills, and emotional health.
