Siloam Springs

Thank you for your interest in the Northwest Arkansas Head Start Siloam Springs Center. Our location serves 30 children and their families. Prior to being a Head Start facility, our building has been a home, a school, and a church. Our location is a State Quality Approved childcare facility, providing a higher quality overall program. Given this designation, we have been proven to not only meet, but exceed the standards providing:

  • A program that views parents as an important part of the early education of their children,
  • A physical environment that is supportive of the physical and mental development of each child in our care,
  • An enivronment that promotes health and nutrition, and an educational program that prepares children for success in school,
  • Trained professional staff who know how to work effectively with children and who continue to pursue educational and training opportunities.

 

Volunteers:

 

  • Siloam Springs Public Library: visits the children on the first Monday of each month.  She reads them a story, they do games or an activity. She also tells them about the library and things that are going on there for them.

Door Entry Security

kes_02.jpgOur Keyless Entry System limits access to our Head Start centers by allowing entry only to authorized staff and families. Unique ID codes are assigned to each person. Codes may be disabled at any time providing a safe, secure environment for children and peace of mind for parents. Our system keeps a live record of who enters our buildings allowing us to monitor building access in real time or by printing a daily log. Each ID code may also be placed on a restricted list directly from our center computer.
