Welcome to the website of Northwest Arkansas Head Start Human Services, Inc.

Head Start is a national program that promotes school readiness by enhancing the social and cognitive development of children through the provision of educational, health, nutritional, social and other services to enrolled children and families. Our mission to accomplish this goal locally is to "enable children and their families to realize the opportunities for developing their full potential". 

Our staff is committed to developing quality programs and engaging parents in their children's learning. We do this by helping them identify and progress toward their educational, literacy and employment goals. 

This website is intended to be a portal of support and information for our families, stakeholders, and staff as they strive to reach their full potential. We hope you find the site informative and user friendly, and welcome suggestions for improving the content at any time.

Our services create gainful employment.

In a global recession, employment is even more difficult to sustain. Our Agency services help families maintain gainiful employment. How? By providing *free* child care services to our families; freeing them from the costly price of obtaining these services elsewhere.

In economically trying times, more parents are searching for affordable childcare services.  By providing our services free we help hundreds of families each year obtain or maintain gainful employment.
