While our Infant Curriculum is totally individualized, our Toddler Curriculum begins to include some "small group" planning. The assignment of primary caregivers keeps the individualized focus and the addition of simple planning through a relaxed, flexible schedule gives some order to the day and expands learning opportunities. Flexible schedules let us capitalize on those moments that arise when children discover something that interests them. They allow us to extend a play period so the children gain maximum satisfaction from what they're doing. The daily schedule includes a short music and language group time to which toddlers are invited but never required to participate.
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.
