Head Start is a comprehensive child development program that serves children from birth to age five, pregnant women, and their families in NEK-CAP’s nine county service area. The program is a child-focused program, and has the overall goal of increasing the school readiness of young children in low-income families. Head Start services are FREE to eligible children!
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.
