Head Start defines School Readiness as when “children are ready for school, families are ready to support their children’s learning, and schools are ready for children” (2011 Leadership Institute Planner, p. 37).The Child Care Consortium, in conjunction with area schools, has specified indicators of School Readiness through our goals and standards. It is our commitment and passion that Head Start children and families in LaPorte County will be instilled with a genuine love for learning and prepared for kindergarten.

We welcome those interested in partnering with us to maintain high standards and quality early childhood education by considering joining our School Readiness Committee.
