Details
Head Start is a federal early childhood education program. It promotes individual growth and personal development of preschool children, ages 3 and 4, by providing comprehensive educational, health, nutrition and social services to them. At least 90% of the children served are from "low income" families. Up to 10% of the children served may be from "over income" families. The income guidelines for Head Start are set each year by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which funds the program.

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.
