Preschool Details: Head Start is a federally funded program for children ages three to five. It is designed to help preschool children of income eligible families by providing a comprehensive program to meet their emotional, social, health, nutritional and psychological needs and to prepare the children for a successful transition to the public school. Parents are the most important influence on a child's growth and development. We seek to support parents in this role, and to implement an educational program for children and parents geared to fostering a positive outlook toward education, self-concept, and competency. Our Head Start Program offers both center based and home based options. The center based option offers a four or five day program. In the home based program, the teacher works with the parent and child in the home once a week, with the child attending center two times per month for peer experience. Free bus transportation is available within the service area.
Eligible Requirements: Income guidelines are 100% of poverty level. All interested are encouraged to apply, regardless of income, as we are allowed a limited number of over-income slots. The child must be three years of age by December 1 of the current year to participate. If the child turns three after December 1, they may start on their birthday if a slot is available.
Age Requirements: 3 to 5 years old
How to Apply: Please send the following with your application: proof of income for the past twelve months; copy of child's birth certificate and copy of child's security card.
