Growing Futures

Growing Futures Early Education Center, formerly Head Start of Shawnee Mission, is dedicated to providing children in our community with access to a quality early education program that not only prepares them socially and academically for kindergarten, but also empowers whole families to be strong and self-sufficient. Our program started in 1965 as a summer enrichment program for 17 low-income children and now provides 206 early education enrollment opportunities for low-income pregnant women and children ages birth to five as well as 17 opportunities for children beyond Head Start eligibility requirements. Our name has recently changed, but our program and our mission remains the same – to nurture children and strengthen families to enrich the community.
