The Early Head Start program serves 32 infants and toddlers in a center-based setting (in Kingston only). Infants and toddlers are supported in their development through utilization of the Tender Care and Early Learning curriculum. Teachers focus on providing individualized, relationship based care to foster positive experiences that are the foundation of healthy growth and development. The first three years of a child’s life lay the groundwork for later learning, and staff are committed to providing the highest quality experiences for our future leaders.
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.
