For HS Staff

Our Head Start Community

The Head Start community in Virginia is a close, supportive community. We like to think of our fellow Head Start teachers, family advocates, bus drivers, cooks, HR staff and directors as part of a diverse team working together to provide the very best early childhood educational experience for Virginia's children.

We believe that the Virginia Head Start Association is an integral part of it. Our mission is really about you -- we are dedicated to help you grow as individuals and as programs, whether through training, education, advocacy or community building. We are only as strong as our members -- if you have ideas on how to make VAHSA an even stronger organization, please share those with us.

Thank you for all you do, every day, to have a positive impact on the lives of Virginia's children and families.

 Dawn Ault, Executive Director and Julia Beglane, Assistant to the Executive Director
