Welcome! Card Icon

portrait of Dr. Tabitha ThompsonOur Early Head Start, Head Start and State Preschool provide a safe, caring, nurturing and educational place for your child. We have wonderful staff who are professionally trained and dedicated to the education, health and well-being of your child and your family. We believe through the partnership of parents, families, teachers, and other child development staff, that we can achieve great things. The staff is committed to providing children with the best experiences possible through a developmentally based approach to learning. This means that our program is age and individually appropriate based on the social, emotional, physical, and academic needs of each child. We look forward to working with you and your child this year. We encourage you to continue to support your child by volunteering and visiting our program. 

As you may know, we are a part of the Twin Rivers Unified School District (TRUSD). Your input at the District Board meetings, English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC) meetings, and District English Language Advisory Committee (DELAC) meetings are vital to our program. Please visit the TRUSD website at for more information and updates on District programs and policies.

I look forward to meeting you and building a positive relationship that will ensure our community continues to build upon its melting pot of diversity that will transcend all of us in being lifelong, positive contributing members of society.
