Early Childhood Services is comprised of a variety of services for children under the age of five years and their low-income families. Programs include traditional Head Start and Early Head Start programs as well as childcare. Through these programs children participate in education and social activities, receive help accessing medical and dental care, and have healthy meals and snacks all within a safe and developmentally appropriate setting. Parents play a key role in their child's development and as such become active participants in various aspects of the programs.
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.
