La Peninsula Community Organization is a not-for-profit entity committed to serving the South Bronx community since 1965. It's federally funded Head Start Program services over 700 children and their families in the South Bronx region. The Head Start model of childcare services began in the early days of the Civil Rights Movement and was formalized in the mid 60’s. The mission then was to give children of poor families an enhanced educational, health, and social experience through enrollment in a Head Start Program. Head Start continues to embrace these goals as its primary mission for the communities it serves.
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.
