Rogers Hallie Martin



At the Northwest Arkansas Head Start Rogers Hallie Martin Center we provide quality child care and education services. We employ highly qualified staff who are both professional and dedicated to our children and families we serve.  This year, we will be working hard to maintain accreditation with ECERS.  We are also implementing new methods and striving to increase parental involvement in the program.

The Rogers Hallie Martin location is the largest of 7 centers in the Northwest Arkansas Head Start Agency.  We have 4 classrooms and provide services to 72 children and their families. The vast majority of our new enrollments come via referrals from past families and relatives who liked our program, thought it was very beneficial, and wanted to be a part of it. We serve a diverse NWA population and employ a diverse staff as well.

Thank you for visiting our center page and your interest in the Head Start program.  Be sure to check our scrapbook for new photos from time to time.  Our lunch menu is available and linked above in both English and Spanish.
  • Junior Auxillary: comes on a regular basis each month to provide our monthly birthday party.
  • Beaver Lake Aviation: sponsors and supports our Center by providing donations for our families during the Seasonal time.

Door Entry Security

kes_02.jpgOur Keyless Entry System limits access to our Head Start centers by allowing entry only to authorized staff and families. Unique ID codes are assigned to each person. Codes may be disabled at any time providing a safe, secure environment for children and peace of mind for parents. Our system keeps a live record of who enters our buildings allowing us to monitor building access in real time or by printing a daily log. Each ID code may also be placed on a restricted list directly from our center computer.
