Providing Children and Their Families a Head Start
El Grito Head Start is enjoying its 51th year in Grant County…currently funded to serve 144 three and four year-old children in a center-based program, 24 in the home-based program which includes expectant moms thru two-years of age and 16 New Mexico Early PreK children. All program components are researched based and adequately suited to meet the numerous needs of the children and families we serve. The program components include education, nutrition, social services, health, special needs, family involvement, parent support groups, and the use of volunteers. We collaborate with Silver Consolidated School District and the FIT provider to be an all-inclusive setting. We have three classrooms housed in the Sixth Street site, one in Cliff (Silver City School District), one in Santa Clara (Ben Trujillo Center), and four at the Main Center (Cooper St. Silver City).
