“My daughters, Khayriyah and Maleigha (both age 2), started last month in the Early Head Start program at Southwest Solutions Central High School.
I have a cousin who went to Head Start in Inkster, and I did a lot with her. Seeing that program made me want Early Head Start for my girls. I want them to excel. This is a great way for them to learn and be around other kids their age.
I really shopped around, too. I wanted a school that was dedicated to their learning, that would be hands-on with them. And they had to be in a safe environment.
They’re really opening up! They’re more talkative and learning more words, after being at the center just one month. One day my daughter started counting to me in Spanish! That was a pleasant surprise. It showed me they’re learning. I feel good about that.
It’s a friendly place. The girls’ teachers are very good.
My kids love school. They look forward to going in the morning and don’t want to leave when it’s time to go home.
I went to a financial services workshop today. I know how to budget because I went to school for business marketing. It’s great that Head Start offers these services to families though. And I did learn a little more.”
