“My granddaughter Derica (5 years old) goes to Head Start at New St. Paul Tabernacle. Her mom and I had stopped in the Head Start center on Fenkell and Grand River and since they were full they referred us to the New St. Paul center. It was perfect because this center is close to our house.
The teachers are very friendly, everybody is interacting, and if there is anything going on they let you know. If there is a problem you can take it to them and they will address it, which I love. And since Derica’s mom has health issues it is great to have a place to take Derica when her mom needs to go the doctor.
Derica’s mom worked in daycare for 15 years and knows the ins-and-outs — and since she trusted Head Start, I did. I would tell other parents to give it a chance. It is just like our kids starting kindergarten. You can stop in and visit at any time and see how things are going. Try to enjoy the moment and take the time to do what you need to do.”
