Preschool Details: Established by Congress in 1965, Head Start is a federally funded educational program designed to meet the needs of low-income children and their families. Based on strong evidence from research and practice, Head Start’s positive track record demonstrates that young children involved in quality early childhood programs are substantially more successful in both school and home environments. Head Start is the only National program of its kind that utilizes a comprehensive services approach to early childhood education. The Head Start Early Childhood Development Program offers a variety of services to preschoolers three to five years old and their families. They provide children with a place to learn through play. Trained personnel supervise the classes of 16 to 17 children. The program consists of activities in art, language, math and science in a friendly, warm atmosphere. Nutrition, health, social services, and psychological/speech therapy services are provided. Children with disabilities are welcomed at our programs. Federal income guidelines establish eligibility. The centers are open year around and full day except on legal holidays.
Age Requirements: 3 to 5 years old
