Learning is a “superpower” at Corinth Head Start.
Open house visitors Friday saw impressive learning displays that make education fun and productive at the remodeled building on Crater Street.
“I’m expecting great things out of this year,” said Corinth Head Start Director Veronica Neal.

“Playing is Learning,” is the theme at Corinth Head Start, which uses a creative curriculum with numerous learning centers.
The classrooms have high-tech smart boards and iPads, and children also play musical instruments and create art.
They learn developmental and cognitive skills, numbers, letters, colors, and social/emotional skills from teachers with bachelor’s degrees.
An extensive remodel was recently completed on the facility, which can house 91 children from babies to around 4-5-year-olds.
It is located in the former Easom High School, and the sunlight coming in from the windows illuminates the new condition of the building.
The Corinth Head Start actually opened in the remodeled facility last November, but the official open house was held Friday to kick off the new school year.
The children are served breakfast, lunch and a snack in a family-style setting, and a playground is also being installed.
City officials, parents and children attended the open house to tour classrooms. The teachers and their assistants worked hard to decorate the classrooms with impressive learning displays to make coming to school fun and productive.
The remodeled building also allowed the Corinth and Kendrick Head Starts to combine into one facility.
