All children need individualized, developmentally appropriate stimulation at every stage of growth if they are to have a chance of achieving their full educational potential. Children who fall significantly behind in language, and cognitive ability in early childhood are likely to remain behind for the rest of their lives. The main goal of the education unit of the L.B.J. & C. Head Start Program is to provide a child development program that will help children gain the social competence, developmental skills, and confidence necessary to be prepared to succeed in their present environment and with later responsibilities in school and life.
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.
