About Gccsa- Foster Head Start

Gccsa- Foster Head Start welcomes the students and families of Houston to its center-based early child care and education facility. As a center, Gccsa- Foster 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. Likewise, a part-time schedule like the one at Gccsa- Foster Head Start can be just what the doctor ordered for families. Students will benefit from learning in a setting with similarly-aged peers and all the social and behavioral development that comes with that. They’ll also form real bonds with non-family adults and the community that comes with seeing the same faces day in and day out! Parents will see students’ learning grow leaps and bounds, all the while not spending too much time away. In addition, Gccsa- Foster Head Start teaches a mixed-age curriculum that facilities peer learning and communal growth. In a mixed-age classroom like at Gccsa- Foster Head Start, students receive open-ended, stimulating activities and are encouraged to move at their own pace. Younger students receive help and encouragement from older students, boosting their confidence and self-esteem, and older students get to lend a helping hand, teaching empathy and the joy of giving. Mixed-age learning replicates the best of a family or neighborhood group structure as children socialize with peers a little ahead or a little behind their own development path.
