Head Start is a child and family development program for low-income preschoolers (ages 3-5) and their families. Children receive a high quality early education opportunity through participation in either our center-based preschool or our home-based option (Early Head Start). All children receive a physical, dental, and numerous other health and developmental screenings to assure that the child is healthy and ready to learn. Center-based children attend school four days each week. Transportation is provided to and from the child's home. Home-based children receive 1 1/2 hour home visits in their home each week. These children come together two to three times each month for play groups and field trips.
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.
