Parent representatives gathered recently to attend Head Start’s Center Committee Training. These parents were elected within each of the program’s parent groups to serve as officers. Parent involvement is at the core of OCO’s Head Start Preschool. Parents are encouraged to be involved in many ways, from volunteering in their child’s classroom to having a voice in program planning and decision making. The preschool program enrolls 3- and 4-year-old children. Applications for enrollment are currently being accepted. Those seeking more information can call 598-4711.
