Head Start is a preschool program that provides services to low income families. The Worcester Community Action Council's Head Start program for 227 families is located in Southern Worcester County. The center-based programs provide limited transportation, two meals and snack, health and nutrition services, and the opportunity to learn in developmentally appropriate classrooms. During the 2011-2012 school year, one classroom in Southbridge, and one classroom in Millbury will operate as full-day models.

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.
