Lawrence County Early Childhood Academy

School Readiness

It is the purpose of the Ironton-Lawrence County CAO Head Start staff to provide high quality services to children and families to empower them to meet their individual needs.  We promote school readiness through assessment in all areas of development, and we maintain partnerships with school districts to assure a seamless transition for children.  Family and community engagement services are provided to assist families in using resources and systems of support to foster life-long learning. We believe school readiness begins before birth.  Therefore, our highly-qualified and nurturing staff provides comprehensive services for prenatal mothers, infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and their families by tailoring services and collaborating with community partners.
