What is going on at the Head Start? You call wanting to ask about your child and the phone is always busy and if you do get someone to answer their very rude. The bus routes are ridiculous, never know when your child is getting home. Bring back the Head Start of old when it was a good place to send your child.

It's always hectic the first few weeks of school. The kids and teachers are just getting used to everything. I say the reason the phones are always busy and the people are always rude is because parents are constantly calling them over silly stuff and it annoys them.

If it annoys them that parents are concerned and calling about their children. Maybe they need to find another JOB.

whatever, you are an idiot. Seriously. It sounds to me they don't want to put up with the parents and they do need a new job. Regardless of whatever reason the parents call they should be treated with respect.

All 3 of my children have gone there and all 3 of them have had Ms.Workman she is a wonderful person and teacher. So not everybody there are like that...but there are some ppl there that are rude and don't have any business working with children. I do think that in the last few years that the headstart has gone down hill and I'm not blaming the teachers they can only do so much....but I do think that some ppl in the licking valley office need to find a new job and stop hiring just anybody they can pull off the streets.

All 3 of mine have attended...yeah, there are issues from time to time...but no more than there have been in with my girls going to elementary school! I think as long as someone else is watching your kids, you, as a parent will always have an issue! No one does it quite like us, that's for sure! But I agree with the ones that say give them a break...it takes several weeks to get settled in!

The program is another abuse of Taxpayers money..Great Idea for the children that need it so much..However, the way it is administrated,"giving the oversite to government (anybody but a white boy) candidates is why parents are dissatifeid & I don't blame them!

I totally disagree, that the headstart program is a waste of taxpayers money. I have two children, one that graduated the program last year and one who is currently in her second year of headstart. Both of my children didn't know how to write their names, say their abc's, or count. And by the time they both completed their first year of headstart, they both could do all three. Not to mention that they had learned colors, shapes, and much much more, and they were only 3 years old, and the head start taught my 3yr old children how to do all of this stuff. and you say its a waste of taxpayers money? Have you had a child in the program? If so, then maybe they just didn't pay attention, or learn anything. Thats your fault. Not just my children benefited from this program, but i know quite a few people who have had children in the program and they succeeded just like my kids have. So before you say dumbv shi* like that, then maybe you should talk to people who have have good experiences with them.

I agree with "parent"////
I totally believe they aided in advancing my girls, who, the 2 that are in school are both straight'a' students..4th,kindergarten.... and my 3 year old started 2 weeks ago, and now is talking much moreplainly and stuff, than b4, along with identifying colors and numbers, beginning her name...taking an interest in doing HOMEWORK with her big sisters in the afternoons...etc.

the head start of fleming county needs to be dismissed if they are not going to give the netural terrortiy that a kid deserves of education if one parent isn't allowed up there then another isn't either. the school is lame and really needs to be dismissed.

Volunteer if you pass a background check. See what you can do to help in anyway. They are not perfect and no person commenting is either. There are pros and cons about the program. They have had their issues and if you have one with them go to the director, that is what I did and some workers there had to find new jobs. Pay attention to what your child tells you not ignore it. I saw somethings that I didn't like and I reported it and then some I helped fix. So get involved. I see so much complaining about the education system in Fleming Co. but no one wants to get off their butts and get involved. Makes me almost sick... Gripe gripe gripe on our computers but can't put them down long enough to get involved. Every program for a child is worth it's weight in gold, if you don't believe me take a look at some more forums and see what is happening to some of the kids in that county. So glad I moved more and more each day.. Negativve, negative attitudes with no production of positive makes for a depressing life and community.
