Return To Succes StoriesLinda and Head Start Naval Avenue
Linda knew about Head Start because her own daughter had been enrolled almost 30 years ago. Now Linda is raising her grandkids on her own, and has continued the tradition by enrolling the youngest one, Diamond, at the Naval Avenue Head Start center.

Diamond is now 5 and has gone through two years with the part-day program. At first, she was hesitant about being in an inclusive program with special needs kids, but she has since learned to embrace it.

Linda’s biggest challenge as a reinstated mom is not knowing the latest and greatest parenting tips – even the alphabet song has changed! But Head Start has helped her in this area, and she takes advantage of many of the classes offered by KCR’s Parenting Place. She has become an active member on the Head Start Policy Council where she encourages other parents to join the program in order to give their child an even better education than what they may already receive at home.
