We offer free, one-hour tours of our program to increase community awareness about Head Start of Shawnee Mission. Visitors will get to see our terrific kids getting off the bus – ready to start their day, and visit our classrooms during our family style breakfast or lunch periods. Youâ€™ll learn about our program and the comprehensive services we offer our childrenÂ and their families. These tours have been very successful in spreading the word about what weâ€™re doing over here at 8155 Santa Fe Drive. Since starting the Crayon Box Tours in 2007, over 1,000 people have walked our halls, met our children, and learned more about the impact or program is making. Our hope is that those who visit us will share what theyâ€™ve learned on the tour with friends and colleagues. You never know when someone might need our services.
To schedule a tour, please contact Renee Miller email@example.com. We hope to see you!
