Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their education do better in school. Becoming an effective advocate for children requires becoming involved in their education and their lives. And being involved in children’s lives is what it takes to be a great and successful parent! The partnership with parents is fundamental to providing quality early childhood services.
Our commitment to health and safety ensures that children and families have the supports and services necessary to achieve health and wellness. Wellness helps to ensure school readiness and success for families and children well beyond the preschool years. If children are healthy and well, they are better able to learn.
"It has been a dynamic and successful year for Berkshire County Head Start (BCHS) with many significant accomplishments, opportunities and learning experiences. We built various new partnerships and worked to strengthen our existing partnerships in order to meet our mission to serve children and families. All in all, the year was full of unique and deep experiences in education and family engagement." - Brett Westbrook, Executive Director
