Anderson Head Start

Anderson Head Start serves 20 children, ages 3-5 throughout Anderson County. The center is located in Garnett, Kansas. The program operates Monday-Friday for six hours per day. Children receive comprehensive preschool services including significant focus on:

Cognitive, language, social/emotional and motor development

Health and dental screening

Nutrition screenings and services

Developmental screenings and individual educational services

Transition services

Families of enrolled children receive all of the above services supported through resource location and development, parent education opportunities, family goal setting and the opportunity to be involved in governance and decision making for the program.

ECKAN Head Start promotes health development for all children. In order for the program and the child’s family to be certain a child is healthy, a variety of screenings must be completed. All children in the Head Start program should receive the screenings and exams on the application checklist. Parents should review the checklist, before attending doctor’s appointments, to ensure they can advocate for their child, and ensure the appropriate screenings are completed.

Please click here for the application checklist for a list of the necessary screenings and exams.

If you have any questions, contact the Family Service worker at your local Head Start Center, or contact the Health Coordinator at (785) 242-5481 ext. 305.
