Attendance Focus:

If your child misses 2 days a month of preschool, he/she likely won’t be reading at grade level by grade 3.

Your child was born ready to learn:

  •   Between birth and age five, the brain develops more than any other time in life.
  •   Your child is learning all the time.
  •   During the first five years, these learning experiences help build connections in the brain to prepare for future learning.


Everyday activities with your child are really learning opportunities for your child:

Teaching children
When parents are involved in their children’s education, children do better in school.

Reach-Up Head Start proudly prepares nutritious meals and snacks to the children we serve. We participate and follow the meal pattern set by the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). At Reach-Up Head Start, we introduced your child to a wide variety of foods. Our menus reflect the diverse cultures represented in our program. No pork is offered on our menus. Daily breakfast and lunch are served family meal style to promote a positive environment for children to try new foods and learn table manners while engaging in a lively conversation.

We are proud to partner with local farmers from the Central Minnesota  area to provide locally grown fruits and vegetables to our children at all centers. Look for our Farm to Head Start symbol on the menus.
