Teacher Saka Coy sings with children on Button Day
“The buttons say “Head Start Works,” and every day we see that it does—both for growing and learning children and their families, who also receive our support, referrals, partnership and our friendship. Our community partners help make our Head Start a true success,” shared Suzanne Miller, Director of CSC Lincoln County Head Start.

Reverend Dr. Paul Hayden
Community partners in attendance included Reverend Dr. Paul Hayden, the new reverend at the Chapel by the Sea Presbyterian Church. The church has been a generous and committed supporter of Head Start, hosting an annual luncheon for Head Start Lincoln County staff, giving the children holiday gifts, and giving backpacks with school supplies at the end for the school year for children needing supplies for kindergarten.
“Their support, care, and compassion in action has been a real inspiration!” said Miller.
CSC Head Start provides a free preschool education to Lincoln County children ages three to five years old, offering a nurturing learning environment that includes parents as important resources for their children’s learning.
Head Start has locations in Lincoln City, Newport, and Toledo. Head Start focuses on the “whole child” and includes the child’s educational, health, family, and social needs.
CSC Head Start’s educational program is designed to foster intellectual, social, and emotional growth. It meets the needs of each child and is sensitive to the child’s cultural identity, as well as any health or academic challenges.
