Head Start

At Wonderful Virginia Academy, we provide a nationally-sponsored program called “Head Start”. This program is specially designed to meet the needs of pregnant women and their child from birth up to the age of 3.

The program aims to foster the healthy physical and intellectual advancement of the child through services that largely involve family participation such as volunteering in classroom activities, parent meetings and policy councils. We believe that a child’s parents are his very first teachers; which is why your interaction with your son or daughter in their first three formative years will be so critical.

Wonderful Virginia Academy will provide you with the essential guidance, parenting resources as well as health-related support within the community.

Eligibility:

  • the family must have a child aged 0 to 3 years old
  • the family must meet income scale or requirements
  • the family must live within our specific service area (For service area scope inquiries, please contact our office)
