Head Start, a comprehensive child development program for low-income families and children ages 3 and 4, is offered at each college. The program prepares children for kindergarten and grade school by focusing on their social and cognitive development and providing educational, health, nutritional, social and other services to them and their families. We encourage parents to take part in their children’s education and help them with their own educational and employment goals.
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.
