Within the first 45 school days, all children enrolled receive a health, vision, dental and developmental screening at the center. Porter-Leath Preschool uses evidence-based curricula to ensure children enter kindergarten ready to learn. All classrooms at Hanley Head Start are led by two teachers and children also greatly benefit from interactions with Foster Grandparent and AmeriCorps members at the site.
