The Head Start program emphasizes cognitive and language development, social and emotional development, physical and mental health and parent involvement. Through Head Start, families establish a “medical home” where children receive ongoing routine health and dental care. In addition, parents have access to support programs that help the family move toward self-sufficiency. Within Head Start, four-year-olds can be enrolled in the Universal Pre-K Program, in collaboration with the White Plains City School District.
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.
