Head Start – A Path to Awesomeness
What’s the most important skill that LIFE requires?
Kids have tons of creative ideas. Being able to express those ideas frees them for FURTHER expression! When we present our ideas to others, connections are made and networks are created. At Head Start, we encourage kids to talk about the ideas that are important to them and why they’re important!
And this is where the awesomeness happens.
Kids who take public speaking take more chances. They ask for what they need. They speak up for themselves and others. They become leaders.
Head Start is unlike anything that is being offered in North America.
Incorporating ideas from revolutionary creatives and educators, we have created the Head Start Handbook For Awesomeness. Using this handbook with Paula Howley’s custom designed curriculum and Paula’s encouraging rapport with students, kids learn to push their boundaries to discover their AWESOMENESS through fun, creative, fear-busting challenges and class presentations.
What to Expect In Class
A fun and encouraging place to learn:
• how to develop their voice and define what is important to them
• how to effectively work through their fears
• the crucial skill of impromptu speaking- thinking on their feet
• how to organize their thoughts
• how to express themselves in an engaging way.
• how to listen to and evaluate others
• how to introduce themselves
• the ideas that they want to share with the world
And of course the infamous Egg Roulette class!

If your child attends regularly and completes all of the Head Start Challenges, we guarantee you will see a transformed person! A person who is prepared to walk through their fear to have their voice heard. A person with greater perspective and more empathy. A person with a unique voice and opinions you may never have otherwise known about. It is priceless.
