Head Start is a Federal program for preschool children from low-income families. Currently, the family’s income must be at the poverty level or below to qualify. For the 2009-2010 school year, we were funded for 50 children through our original continuation grant and an additional 35 children through our expansion grant, for a total of 85. There are minimum standards that we must meet for: Education, Mental Health, Physical and Dental health, children with Disabilities, Parent services, Community partnerships, Shared Governance and Transition.

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.
