Welcome to Androscoggin
Head Start and Child Care
A program for children ages birth to five and their families, Androscoggin Head Start and Child Care (AHSCC), is a federally funded program whose purpose is to promote children’s school readiness by enhancing their cognitive, social, and emotional development. Head Start provides children the opportunity to be successful in group settings while preparing them for academic success through quality learning environments which support children’s growth in
- language and literacy;
- cognition and general knowledge;
- physical development and health;
- social and emotional learning;
and approaches to learning. Our programs are designed to be inclusive of children with varying abilities and needs.
The comprehensive provided by Head Start/Early Head Start include education and cognitive development, health and nutrition services for the child, and family support and linkages to community social services for the family. Services are designed to be responsive to each child and family’s ethnic, cultural, and linguistic heritage.
The role of the parent as their child’s first and most important teacher is the foundation of developing a relationship between staff and the family. AHSCC staff builds relationships with families that support family’s well-being and positive parent-child relationship; families as learners and lifelong educators; family engagement in transitions; family connections to peers and community; and families as advocates and leaders.
Our program options include care that is sure to meet your needs and the needs of your child. Programs are designed for families who want to
strengthen their ability to improve their lives, the lives of their children, and increase school readiness skills. Use the links below to find a program that best fits your child and family needs.
