Head Start provides an array of comprehensive, quality services, including health, nutrition, parent support, education, and mental health, to children ages three to five and their families. The programâ€™s vision is â€œeach child and family leaves Head Start, healthy, eager to learn, and ready for success.â€ Program staff work closely with families to ensure that each child has the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in kindergarten. Early Head Start offers the same comprehensive services through a home-based model for expectant mothers and families of children ages birth to three.
Who is Eligible?
Children who are 3 to 5 years old are eligible for Head Start services. Pregnant women and children from birth to 3 years of age are eligible for Early Head Start services. Children and families who are homeless, in foster care, or receive TANF or SSI are also eligible for services. Eligibility is determined by Head Start program staff and some families may be eligible for services if they are determined to be at or below the federal poverty level. Some grantees enroll a percentage of children from families with incomes above the Poverty Guidelines as well.
Families are encouraged to apply.
