Guam Head Start Philosophy:
The Guam Department of Education Head Start Program strives to provide, arrange and/or obtain comprehensive services for low-income children and families. The number of families that are no longer eligible for public assistance programs continues to increase, although their level of income remains low. The program assists families to become more involved with the health, safety, social and educational needs of their children and adult family members. The more knowledge and understanding the families have regarding issues and concerns, the better they can advocate for themselves and with us.
