Kentucky Head Start: Embracing Language Diversity

Step inside the vibrant walls of our Catholic Charities Head Start Kentucky location, and you will immediately sense the electric energy of language diversity. Kentucky is a Head Start program designed specifically for families who meet specific financial needs and criteria. What sets this location apart is its one-of-a-kind bilingual classroom, where English and Spanish seamlessly integrate, catering to the predominantly Spanish-speaking background of the students.

Adding to its distinctiveness, this single classroom encompasses children of 3-5 years old, fostering a rich environment of learning and growth. English and Spanish intertwine effortlessly as the children engage in conversations, activities and learning. This unique bilingual setting celebrates and preserves the rich cultural heritage of our students, creating an inclusive space where every child’s voice is heard and valued.

Through the skilled guidance of our dedicated teachers, the children develop fluency in both languages, equipping them with a valuable skill set and confidence for their future. “As a teacher here, I am privileged to witness the language diversity within our walls. Our bilingual classroom is truly one-of-a-kind, where English and Spanish harmoniously coexist,” said Ana Cruz, a teacher at Kentucky. 

Kentucky Head Start is not just a place of education; it is a community of support and understanding. We recognize the importance of involving families in their children’s educational journey. Through workshops, events and open communication, parents actively participate in their children’s growth and de

velopment. Our center becomes a bridge, connecting families from different backgrounds, cultures and languages.  

This location stands as a testament to the transformative power of education, diversity.
