Head Start is a national program that promotes school readiness by enhancing the social and cognitive development of children through the provision of educational, health, nutritional, social and other services to enrolled children and families. LESA is the grantee for the Livingston County Head Start Programs providing comprehensive child development services to economically disadvantaged three to five year old children and their families. 10% of the funded slots are "reserved" for children with disabilities for inclusion in classrooms. The curriculum has a focus on helping preschoolers develop the early reading and math skills needed to be successful in school. Additionally, attention to the whole child includes a focus on social and emotional development. Children learn skills to negotiate, problem solve and develop empathy as they interact with their peers and other adults in early childhood settings. Activities to develop gross and fine motors skills are included on a daily basis to make sure all five of the dimensions of readiness are addressed.
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.
