Potential Development

Alta Head Start/Early Head Start offers quality educational programs in a nurturing, secure and developmentally appropriate setting for children birth to five. Qualified, credentialed teachers who are trained in best practice academic and social-emotional standards, as well as other trained support staff, provide children a preschool experience focused on school readiness skill development.

Alta Head Start maintains a Head Start classroom and an Early Head Start classroom at Potential Development, both which provide traditional Head Start services to those children. In our collaborative partnership with the Potential Development program, we also offer Head Start services to eligible children, who are enrolled in their Preschool Program.

Services offered by Alta Head Start/Early Head Start include Education, Health, Nutrition, Disabilities, Mental Health, Social Services/Family Development and Parent Involvement.

Along with our classrooms at Potential Development, there are seven Head Start centers located in Youngstown, with additional locations in Austintown, Boardman, Campbell and Sebring.
