About Us

The Native American Coalition of Tulsa (NACT)
Head Start program

NACT Head Start is a non profit 501c(3) organization funded through federal grants and community donations for over 25 years.

We service over 174 low-income children ages 3 to 5 and their families each school year by providing early childhood education, health and dental screenings, physicals, immunizations, speech and behavioral therapy, and locating resources such as food, clothing, and housing assistance.

Our Parent Involvement Manager also works with parents to help them receive GED’s and college educations. We host parent and child literacy events and have Parent meetings that offer trainings in topics from parenting skills to financial management. Many teachers have Bachelors degrees and have completed their state certifications.

All classrooms maintain a minimum of 2 teaching staff that are highly qualified. NACT is a 3 Star Program rated by DHS. Head Start services are free.


NACT Head Start’s mission is to nurture and educate young children and to provide educational opportunities for families to become more self-sufficient through the utilization of resource networks. Through our efforts, we hope to empower families to become their child’s first and foremost advocate and most valuable teacher.
