Head Start is a free program that helps low income preschool children (3-5 yrs of age) and their families succeed in school and in life. It is designed to prepare the children for Kindergarten and beyond as well as meet the nutritional, health, social and mental health needs of the children and their families. The Springfield Urban League has operated a Head Start Program in Sangamon and Morgan counties since 1990.
