HeadStart staff gets training at ASU

July 24, 2006

Albany -- A program that gives children a head start on education is gearing up for another year of promoting literacy for youngsters before they even start school.  

More than 500 leaders with the Head Start program came to Albany State University today from across Southwest Georgia.  They met for a training program that keeps them up to date on providing the best care for three to five year olds.  

"Training to make sure staff is up on the latest updates of what Head Start has put out as well as annual training on child abuse and neglect laws," says Ramona Codling of the Community Action Council. "Making sure they understand that and the importance of it." 

Classes also teach the staff about disease prevention and creative teaching strategies.  In Southwest Georgia, more than 2,500 students participate in Head Start.  

A little more than a hundred are babies or toddlers, the rest are between 3 and 5.
