South Coast Head Start, a no cost early childhood educational program for low-income families, is currently open and still enrolling children for our current school year!

South Coast Head Start, a program of Oregon Coast Community Action, offers education and support services to qualifying families at no cost! The program offers fun, researched-based curriculum, healthy meals, inclusive services for children with disabilities, and health screenings with follow-up support for all enrolled children. Services are available for pregnant mothers to children age 5.

We have expanded program options with Baby Promise and Preschool Promise in select areas. Priority for enrollment is based on child age, family income, disabilities, and other factors that demonstrate a need for services. Children in foster care, experiencing homeless, or receiving public assistance are automatically eligible for services.

The Head Start approach to school readiness means that children are ready for school, families are ready to support their children’s learning, and schools are ready for children. Head Start is a leader in the early childhood field with a strong, clear, and comprehensive focus on all aspects of healthy development, including physical, cognitive, and social/emotional development, all of which are essential to children being ready for school.

Dear Lincoln Families,

Winter is here and though it is wet, we are still getting outside every day under our wonderful covered play areas. Please take a moment to read the newsletter (click on the green tab on the right hand side of this page) and read more about what we are learning at Lincoln School.

Children are settling in to the regular routine of school, and teachers work hard to make each day healthy, supportive and challenging for all children. Structured lessons, time to explore materials and manipulatives, art projects, and creative learning strategies designed by teachers to engage children are all found in Lincoln classrooms. Our teachers are wonderful resources! If you would like to extend learning at home, reach out – we have ideas and are glad to help.

Families are welcome at Lincoln! Please come in and say hello, or have lunch with your child. Thank you for all you do to get your child to school each day, we miss them when they are gone.

Check out the reader board for upcoming events, dates, and announcements. Maidie Rosengarden Ed.D.

Los niños están estableciendo adentro a la rutina regular de la escuela, y los profesores trabajan duro hacer cada día sano, de apoyo y desafiando para todos los niños. Las lecciones, la hora de explorar los materiales y los manipulatives, los proyectos del arte, y las estrategias de aprendizaje creativo estructurados diseñadas por los profesores para contratar a niños se encuentran todo en las salas de clase de Lincoln. Nuestros profesores son recursos maravillosos! Si usted quisiera ampliar el aprendizaje en casa, alcance hacia fuera – tenemos ideas y estamos alegres ayudar.

Las familias son agradables en Lincoln! Venga por favor adentro y diga hola, o almuerce con su niño. Gracias por todos lo que usted hace para llegar a su niño a la escuela cada día, nosotros los faltan cuando se van.
