Metro Delta is committed to providing a comprehensive preschool program that addresses social/emotional, physical and cognitive skills in preparation for transition to public school.  We provide a safe and developmentally appropriate environment that includes qualified staff.  Metro Delta also collaborates with Martin Luther King, Jr., Early Head Start Program (serving infants and toddlers) and Eutaw Marshburn Elementary School (providing part-day children with a full-day of educational services).

Metro Delta Head Start Center has developed many partnerships within the community that contribute to the effectiveness of the program.  Some of the partnerships that have been established in the community are: John Eager Howard Elementary School, Westside Elementary, Mount Royal Elementary, William Pinderhughes Elementary, Eutaw Marshburn Elementary, Baltimore City Health Department, Maryland Society for Sight, TICKLE Program, DRU Healthy Families, Druid Heights Community Development, Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, Family and Children Services of Central Maryland Foster Grandparent Program, Reservoir Hill Improvement Council, Strive, Payne Memorial Outreach Center, STAR, and the Judy Center.

The program will continue to support parents in addressing their own needs through the center’s network of Parent Support Groups and Support Services.  The center sponsors its own parent workshops, parent training, Community Fair and staff training with the support of the Board of Directors (Baltimore Metropolitan Alumnae Chapter, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.).

Metro Delta Head Start strives to be in the forefront with providing job preparations, work experience and job opportunities through partnering agencies.  We provide community services and internships for parents, students and community residents.  The program is committed to hiring qualified parents to fill vacant positions.
