The Phenix City Head Start Center is committed to a comprehensive vision of preparing our children and families for transition to school. This comprehensive vision includes all aspects of school readiness. The services we provide address the health and safety aspects as well as mental wellness and disabilities.
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.

Families are encouraged to apply.
