The OHCAC Head Start is a free, developmentally appropriate preschool education and socialization program for income eligible 3, 4, and 5 year old children and their families. Children with special needs are also eligible. The program operates according to applicable Head Start and Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services regulations. We strive to provide an environment where children feel safe and are encouraged to be active and creative explorers trying out their own ideas and thinking their own thoughts in areas that interest them. The half day center option is available for children to attend a preschool classroom either in the morning or afternoon for 3 ½ hours Monday through Thursday. Children attending the morning session are served an approved USDA breakfast. The afternoon session children receive lunch and a snack.
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.
