Floyd County Head Start Birth to Five offers Parent Workshops for our currently enrolled families providing additional parenting resources through an interactive curriculum. The workshops give parents a space to find support and encouragement among other parents. The meetings typically occur every other month, and parents may share any topics important to them and their child and discuss current issues, special events, and information about their Head Start child's experience. Workshops provide an opportunity for parents to get involved in their child’s education while helping to determine the program's future and upcoming Workshops. If you need transportation to a meeting, please get in touch with the Family Advocate Office.
Learning at Home
Staff will provide educational activities for parents/ guardians to work on with their child at home. Every student will receive a home learning box during their initial home visit, with all the materials needed to complete the home learning activities. The Home Learning Packet will be sent home on Mondays and returned to school on Thursdays. Parents will need to fill out the sheet completely and return it to their child's teacher.
The Family Services Office provides extensive support opportunities for parents' development as their child’s first and primary teacher. We strive to collaborate with families ensuring they feel confident and capable of cultivating their child’s development, pursuing their own dreams, and increasing their self-reliance.
