Tishomingo Head Start

“The Head Start program is a family oriented program that is parent driven and focused on preparing students with a well rounded education for their transition into kindergarten,” said Lisa John, administrator of the Chickasaw Nation Division of Education. “The schools they lead into have really seen our students excel in the classroom as well as socially,”

Head Start is a federally-funded education program that serves three-and four-year-olds from income-eligible families. The program offers components in education, parent and guardian involvement, health, social services and services for children with disabilities.

Throughout the school year Head Start students participate in a variety of activities and field trips including trips to area museums, fire stations, libraries, zoos, and the annual Chickasaw Nation festival.

Applications for the Head Start program are accepted at the Chickasaw Nation Child Care Center or Head Start Centers throughout the service area. Applications may also be mailed or faxed to applicants.
