Our Head Start Center is one of 6 Head Start Centers overseen by the Natchitoches Parish Government. We house 180 children within 10 classroom of three and four year olds at our location. As a Federally fund program our students fall within the poverty level guidelines. Many of my students are children of parents and/or single parents with a medium age of mid twenties. My class is made up of 14 three year olds. Many of the children have limited exposure on how to care for basic needs of others and what they find within their world. I have learned over the 14 years of teaching that visualizing and hands on activities especially in the field of science and math helps with retention in later years. These types of life related lessons shifts the individual (self) concern to a worthwhile endeavor. Caring for a tangible living creature helps them to understand how to be responsible and respectful. These children need to be taught how to be responsible and how to play.
