Welcome to our website. Wilmington Head Start has been a premier pre-school program in the City of Wilmington for over 30 years. We promote school readiness and success in later life by enhancing the social and cognitive development of children through the provision of education, health, nutrition, and social services to children and their families.

At Wilmington Head Start, Inc. we encourage the development of not only the child, but the entire family. We foster the belief that parents are "The First Teachers", and the most critical influence of all. We offer many opportunities for parents to become involved in our program, through volunteering, participating in the center and Policy Council meetings. We also have a very strong father/male involvement component. Family Activities are planned throughout the year. Please browse our website to learn more about our programs and services we provide. We look forward to working with you.
