Parents

Child Maltreatment

Staff, who work with your child and family, care about your health, safety, and well being.  We are required by law to report suspected child abuse or neglect.  Being a parent is no easy task and we are here to support you by offering guidance in alternative discipline techniques, resources to parenting classes, and other useful workshops.

Head Start staff is required by state law to report any suspected or identified child abuse to the Department of Human Services (DHS).  Head Start staff will support families who have an involvement with DHS and will preserve absolute confidentiality of all records pertaining to a report in accordance with state law.
