Early Head Start
In contrast to Head Start being Rooftop’s oldest running program, Early Head Start is Rooftop of Virginia’s newest early education program. Early Head Start serves children ages 6 weeks to 3 years, as well as pregnant mothers. The Early Head Start centers have the ability to cater to young infants as well as older toddlers while still maintaining the standard of excellency that our Head Start program is known for. In addition to the traditional classroom setting, there is also an Early Head Start Home Based option. Early Head Start’s mission is to promote healthy outcomes for pregnant women, to enhance the development of very young children, and to promote healthy family functioning.

Head Start is one of Rooftop of Virginia CAP’s oldest running programs. This department provides an early childhood education program to 221 three and four year olds from income eligible families residing in Grayson and Carroll counties and the city of Galax. The overall goal of the program is to assist the child in dealing with the present and future responsibilities in school and life. The program provides 4 component areas that include education, health, social services, and parental involvement. Children may participate in the home base option or attend one of the seven classrooms located in Fries, Galax, and Hillsville.

Rooftop’s Head Start program is award winning and has been found in full compliance with all state program requirements. The success of the department is credited to the staff that give their all and their hearts to care for the children that come to them.
