Organization aims to help children get a Head Start

It is recruitment time for Bear River Head Start, a non-profit program that serves families with children ages zero to five along with pregnant mothers. A so-called “Get a Head Start Night” is planned for Thursday, May 12 and for the Logan center. It will be held from 6-8 p.m. at 852 South 100 West.On KVNU’s Crosstalk show, Head Start Representative Betty Buist said it is a chance for parent to learn what Head Start is all about and, in her words, “it’s all about kids.””Our centers that we have here in the Cache Valley take children into the classroom when they are four years old and they stay there through the school year,” Buist explained. “It is just a fun experience for these little kids. “They get to do a lot of things, get a lot of experiences, go on a lot of field trips and the important thing is they do get to socialize with other children.”She say parents are very involved not only in the pre-school program but also Bear River Head Start’s Early Head Start which serves pregnant mothers and children zero to three with home-based or center-based options.
