What parents are saying:

​My experience at Indiana County Head Start has been wonderful and also a learning experience for myself. The two teachers in the classroom are very nice, patient and gleeful, along with the other staff I see throughout the building. The way the children learn throughout all the different stations that are broken up into play areas in the classroom is remarkable.  My son Zion, has learned so much since he started. He is also very excited to go to school and see all his friends and begin his day with learning. Thanks again to all.
