The pandemic has forced many parents out of work, but many are now trying to find jobs. Head Start is gearing up to be ready to receive their children and help to ease the transition to school for families with young children.

The MSU Extension Head Start program in Harrison County strives to promote the optimal development of each child and that child’s family through positive learning experiences and high-quality service.

Louise Davis, Extension professor in the MSU School of Human Sciences, said the Head Start program leverages community partnerships and research-based methods to serve children at their youngest and most vulnerable stage in life.

“Our goal is to create a seamless chain of service for children so they can easily transition from early care and education settings to kindergarten,” Davis said. “We believe that high-quality early childhood experiences and strong relationships between families and communities are essential in laying a foundation for school success.”

Centers to be served are Gaston Point in Gulfport, East Biloxi Gorenflo Elementary, and Gilbert Mason in D’Iberville. For more information on these job opportunities, contact Chaundrea Allen at 662-418-9508 or clg294@msstate.edu.
