Community Action operates Head Start and Early Head Start programs for Washington County children who are 6 weeks to 5 years old. These programs prepare children for success in school, show parents how to be their children’s first teachers, and help families set and achieve family goals. Children who attend high-quality early childhood programs such as Head Start and Early Head Start begin school fully prepared to learn. A good early education makes a big difference. Head Start children learn, play, and eat meals together. They go on wonderful field trips, create portfolios of art and journal entries, and begin to develop literacy, math, and computer skills. Teachers build close relationships with children and parents, and together they monitor children’s development and help them reach individual 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.
