Head Start / Early Head Start is a Federal program for preschool children from low-income families. The program is operated by local non-profit organizations in almost every county in the United States. Children who attend participate in a variety of educational activities. They also receive free medical and dental care, have healthy meals and snacks, and enjoy playing indoors and outdoors in a safe environment. Head Start / Early Head Start strives to help all children succeed and services are offered to meet the special needs of children with disabilities. The program serves children 6 weeks to 4 years of age, who meet the Federal income guidelines.
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.
