Head Start began in Scott County in 1965, as well as the rest of the country, as an eight week summer program designed to break the cycle of poverty by providing children with a program to meet their emotional, social, health, nutritional and psychological needs. The idea was that with a little help children from even the most disadvantaged families could begin elementary school at the same level of school readiness as their more advantaged peers.
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.
