Welcome! The New Haven Public School is committed to offering high quality early childhood experiences to our youngest students--children 6 weeks to 5 years old. Our Child Daycare and Early Head Start programs serve children 6 weeks to 3 years, while all our Pre-K programs (Head Start, School Readiness and Magnet School Pre-K) serve 3-5 year olds. While Pre-K programs located in schools coincide with the school year calendar, we also offer 12 month programs that are open 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. daily to meet the needs of working parent at the Early Childhood Learning Center, 495 Blake Street and Dwight School Readiness Program at 1324 Chapel Street.
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.
