SKCDC has operated the Head Start Program since its inception in 1965. Studies at that time showed that children from low income families were not entering school as prepared to learn as children from higher economic levels. Head Start was designed to offer high quality early childhood education, nutrition, health, and social services, along with a strong parent involvement component. Initially, the primary goal of the program was to increase social competence in preschool children. That goal has expanded to include more emphasis on a child's cognitive development especially in the areas of language and literacy.
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.
