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.

How to Apply

These income guidelines can be waived for families with special circumstances who might benefit from placement in Head Start. Children must be at least three years of age to enroll in the RWCFS Head Start program. Families must reside in Rock or Walworth County. A child must not be eligible for kindergarten at the time of enrollment. Special emphasis is given to four year old children. A child with a disability will receive priority points. Regardless of any changes in family income, once a child is determined eligible and enrolled in the program, he or she will remain eligible for the program throughout the current year and for a second year, as long as he or she still meets the age requirements. Placement and Waiting Lists – Children must meet the federal government’s income guidelines.
