The Center Based program has 3.5 hour and 7 hour sessions in select locations.

Tri-County Head Start provides children with experiences that prepare them for future success in Kindergarten.

Using the High Scope Curriculum as our foundation we also draw inspiration from both Reggio-Emilia and Montessori approaches. Building trusting, loving relationships is the cornerstone of our practices. Our classrooms support social-emotional wellness using the Conscious Discipline method. Our safe and open-ended classroom are intentionally designed to allow for students to explore, grow, and build developmental skills. Using loose parts, real items for play and natural elements, we provide experiences for problem solving and critical thinking. At Tri County Head Start we are responsive to students’ ideas and culture by ensuring the environment reflects and respects individuals, families, and the communities they live in.
