Head Start is a national program funded by the Office of Head Start, Administration for Children and Families. This program is recognized as the premier provider of developmental and educational services to pregnant moms, babies, toddlers and preschoolers who live in poverty and struggle to meet the basic need of life. The overall goal of Head Start is to increase the school readiness and social competence of young children in low-income families. Head Start services are family-centered and comprehensive. Child Focus, Inc. provides both Head Start and Early Head Start reaching over 700 at risk low income children in Clermont County ages 0-5 every year. Services for children 0-3 and pregnant moms are part of the Early Head Start program. Services offered for preschool age children ages 3-5 are part of the Head Start program. The program philosophy, program approach, target population and delivery models are very similar in both 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.
