The AIU Head Start Program provides preschool children with a comprehensive, flexible program designed to reinforce and respond to the unique strengths and needs of each individual child and family. The program offers services that include health and wellness, education, social services, and family engagement and support.

Through the various models, Head Start supports a greater degree of school readiness skills and social competence in preschool children. To achieve this goal a nationally recognized/ research-based curriculum is provided that promotes self-confidence, academic awareness, social interactions, and wellness.

In most cases, four-year-old children will have a classroom experience. In most cases, three-year-old children will start with an in-home teacher.
