General Information

Our Head Start/Early Head Start Program provides services to 1,102 children and families in fifteen (15) academies. The academies are located through out the city of Buffalo, Cheektowaga, Derby, Springville, Blasdell, Gowanda, Lackawanna and Getzville. CAO Head Start/Early Head Start operates sixty-three center based classrooms and learning environments (full day and half day classroom), and home based program option.

 

CAO has collaboration with other community agencies program which included the Buffalo Board of Education Universal Pre-K Program, Buffalo Hearing and Speech, Gateway Longview Therapeutic Program, State University of New York at Buffalo, Buffalo State College and RIF.

Services to children and families include education (literacy/numeracy), nutrition, health, mental health, social services, parent involvement and disabilities. Speech therapists, physical and occupational therapist and special education teachers work directly with our children and teachers in the classroom.

Parents are key to our program and are encouraged to volunteer in the classroom, form center parent committees, and be a part of the policy and decision making process for the program. This process often leads to jobs for parents who are unemployed.
