Head Start and Early Head Start are comprehensive child development programs which serve low-income children from birth to age 5, pregnant women and their families. We provide a range of services in the areas of education and early childhood development, ethnic, cultural and linguistic heritage and experience. The Head Start Program Performance Standards define the services that all Head Start Programs are to provide to the children and families they serve. We provide two meals and a snack each day for all students.
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.
