We read to the children and that fosters a love of reading in them. They like to sit in a chair and tell the other children about the pictures in a book or they read to them from their memory of a story that was read to them.  Reading is fundamental. It is the stepping-stone to every needed aspect of life. We need to read to function on a daily basis.”The Head Start program also provides nurturing for the children. “Today is Dad’s Day and dads are invited to visit Head Start and they will have an opportunity to read to the children,” Fayson said. “Thursday is Grandparents Day and the grandparents will visit the classrooms and see the wonderful work the children are doing.“Friday is Fun Day. The children will go outside and play and just have a good time together. We’ll also have a balloon launch. The balloons will be launched in honor of the Week of the Young Child.”Fayson said Head Start is playing a very important role in the lives of young children.
