The Maui Economic Opportunity Head Start Preschool Program has 11 centers on Maui, 2 centers on Molokai, and a partnership on the island of Lanai. Head start has both full-day and part-day centers. Head Start in Maui County has been part of Maui Economic Opportunity (MEO) Inc. since it's inception in 1965.

MEO Head Start's mission is to promote growth and change by empowering economically challenged, high-risk, and/or special needs pre-school children ad their families to better succeed in life.

Head Start serves families with pre-school aged children. Priority is given to families who meet the Federal Income Guidelines, high-risk and children with special needs or disabilities.

The MEO Head Start Program's focus is the whole family; assuring parents receive help with a wide range of family needs. The staff enters into a compassionate partnership with each Head Start parent and family to shape the future of their Head Start child. This is accomplished with one child, one parent, and one family at a time.

Parents are a very important part of the Head Start program. We regard them as their child's first teacher and believe they always have vital information to share regarding their child. We highly encourage, invite, and welcome them to actively participate, as well as volunteer in the classroom. The teaching staff and parents form a partnership and share ideas for activities, excursions, etc.
