Head Start Love
Tala Hooban: Hi, everyone. I'm here in New Orleans with Yolanda Motley from Clover, and I wanted to ask her what she loves about Head Start.
Yolanda Motley: I've been in Head Start now for 17 years, and what I love most about Head Start is the fact that it puts families on a trajectory of success. I've been here long enough to watch families come through here and to see the children leave.
And we get many comments from the families that say when they get to kindergarten, they're kindergarten prepared. And what I'm most honored about is when the principals are fighting for our children from Clover. We love Head Start because it really provides that foundation for families and children.
Tala: Thank you, Yolanda. It was great visiting your site. Thanks for having us.
Yolanda: Thank you for coming.
Tala: Thank you.Close
