LPHS Mission Statement
The mission of Little People’s Head Start (LPHS) is to provide a healthy, supportive, and educational environment for children and their families so that all may reach their full potential.
We envision that Little People’s Head Start will be the premier organization in White Pine County from which families and their young children receive education, support, information, and services that lead to their self-sufficiency.
Available Programs at LPHS
Little People’s Head Start is a center-based preschool. Children ages 3-5 are in classes of 17 with 2 teachers per class. Teachers and support staff provide individualized, comprehensive early learning experiences. LPHS utilizes The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool in all of its classrooms. Classes meet four days a week (M-TH) from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. LPHS currently has two part-year and one full-year class (please see schedule below).
What Can LPHS Do For Your Child?
Head Start is a federal program designed to help young children get basic medical attention, make a smoother transition from early childhood to the school environment, and get on the path to self-sufficiency. It is designed to promote learning and self-reliance in both parents and children. Head Start is offered for children ages 3-5.
