The theme approach guides our developmentally appropriate planning for three, four and five year olds. Teachers select topics of interest to their children and use these ideas to reinforce developmental objectives for each individual child. As with the Infant and Toddler Curriculums, goals for each child are determined from the ongoing assessment. Teachers create individualized lesson plans based on the theme and incorporate language, math, science/sensory, small motor, large motor, creative, social and emotional objectives.
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.
