The district’s Child Development program provides continuous, intensive and comprehensive center-based and home-based services to expectant families, infants/toddlers, preschool and school-age children. Our philosophical approach encompasses the very nature of children and captures the essence of developmentally appropriate learning experiences for all children. We utilize a compendium of curricula, monitoring and assessment tools to enhance and determine children’s physical, social-emotional and intellectual growth, with particular focus on children’s growth in the areas of literacy and numeracy.
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.
