About Fifth Ward Head Start
Fifth Ward Head Start welcomes the students and families of Houston to its center-based early child care and education facility. As a center, Fifth Ward Head Start resembles the best of what students will get in the years ahead in structured schooling while maintaining the close community and relationships that’re instrumental in early childhood development. Attending a center benefits students as students will spend their days in a structured, stable environment that hones spatial, vocabulary and other skills with enriching curriculums and activities. Moreover, the full-time schedule at Fifth Ward Head Start allows parents to get a structured learning environment for their children that’ll help develop cognitive and language skills during these most formative years. The full-time-schedule allows for full curriculums of play, fun and social time with peers and staff. Children will get to know their peers in-depth and form real bonds, which helps develop social and behavioral skills that’ll be important for kindergarten and the years ahead. Fifth Ward Head Start also teaches a language immersion curriculum, fully immersing students in the learning of a foreign language in a natural way! Students at Fifth Ward Head Start will experience subjects, activities, exercises and play all in a foreign language, rather than a language being taught as a separate subject. Language immersion has been shown to be a fantastic method to help expand students’ horizons and inculcate language abilities at a time where students’ cognitive abilities are taking off.
