Penquis Head Start

Updated 1 month ago

Penquis Director of Child Development Heidi LeBlanc was on the 5pm newscast to talk about Head Start.

Head Start has been in existence for 50 years.
32 years ago this week on October 22, 1982, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed October Head Start Awareness Month.
“Perhaps the most significant factor in the success of Head Start has been the involvement of parents, volunteers, and the community,” President Reagan said. “Their commitment and the services provided by dedicated Head Start staff have been instrumental in creating a quality program that truly provides young children with a ‘head start’ in life.”
Penquis offers HS and Early HS programs in Penobscot, Piscataquis, and Knox Counties.
18 locations/36 classrooms=630 children—–431 through HS or Early HS
All programs are licensed and enrolled in the Quality Rating System. All classroom teachers have degrees in ECE or closely related field.
Comprehensive services (health screenings, assistance with medical and dental care, nutritional guidance, behavioral and mental health guidance) as well as family involvement and goal setting.
Developmentally appropriate classroom activities-using thoughtfully planned and meaningful play experiences as a vehicle for learning.
HS and Early HS require income eligibility, but other factors can be considered (homelessness, child disability, etc.)
Child care can be accessed using vouchers and subsidy but we offer the same services to children whose families are over the income eligibility levels but wish to access child care. They can directly pay for child care services as they would with any provider.
For information, contact our enrollment specialist, Linda Henderson at 973-3567
