Head Start Child Care Centers

H&F has designed over 40 Head Start and Early Head Start Child Care Centers over the past 44 years. Beginning in 1974 with their commission - to convert an existing badly cared for pair of buildings at the South Dade Labor Camp into the then nascent organization, RCMA, their first ever new center for farmworker children.


Head Start Centers are a specialized building type, much different than private sector day care centers, even high end for -profit operations. For one thing, Head Start Centers are not just baby sitting endeavors but a whole panoply that looks at the whole child experience: learning, playing, social and intellectual development.
