Head Start is a federally-funded program that provides preschool education and ensures that both children and parents are prepared for kindergarten and for a life of learning. However, Head Start promotes far more than a quality education. Through either direct service or referrals, Head Start children also receive numerous health services ensuring good physical, dental, nutritional, and mental health. Head Start is available at no cost to pregnant moms, infants, toddlers, and preschoolers up to age five from income-eligible families. Children with special needs are welcome. Three different Head Start programs exist to best serve our children and parents: Head Start Head Start serves children ages 3-5 who are not eligible for kindergarten.
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.
