This kanji 頭 what does it mean in this sentence?

うちには二十歳を頭に、3人の男の子がいる。

I looked up the meaning of かしら and still don't understand the meaning of the whole sentence. Please help translate.

Thanks

「うちには二十歳{はたち}を頭{かしら}に、3人の男の子がいる。」

「かしら」 here means the "first one on the list". In the context of the siblings, it refers to the oldest child.

"With a 20-year-old (at the top/as the oldest), we have three boys in our family."
