New Castle County Head Start, Inc. classrooms have been ranked among the top 10% of all Head Start programs in the country based on a recent review by the Federal Department of Health and Human Services. In addition, all of our centers are rated as a star level 5 program (the highest level) by the State of Delaware's Quality Rating and Improvement System. 

I am honored and humbled to work with an outstanding staff at New Castle County Head Start, Inc. They are governed by a dedicated volunteer Board of Directors who understand the community and support the mission of the agency. Our parent Policy Council works closely with the board and the staff to consistently evaluate our policies and services with the spirit of continuous improvement. The commitment of our parents and the input they provide is crucial to the success of our program.

Throughout my over 40 year career as an early childhood professional, I can truthfully say that I have never seen an agency with so many talented and dedicated individuals working in harmony for one purpose. I am personally thankful to have been a member of this organization for over 27 years.

I hope you will enjoy browsing our updated website and Facebook page. You can also contact us any time by telephone or email if you have questions about our program or would like to visit one of our centers.

Warm Regards,

Jeffrey E. Benatti
