Washita Valley Community Action Council


Washita Valley CAC Head Start’s philosophy is that parents are the child’s first and most important teacher.

Parents are provided the opportunity for individual and family goal setting, and to participate in all areas of the program.

We maintain that when children have adequate nutrition, are immunized, receive appropriate educational and social support, and have learning problems identified and remedied early, they have far greater success in school and in life.

Our goal is to assist children in building self confidence and competence needed to become lifelong learners.
