Preschool Details: Ulster County Community Action Early Head Start/Head Start is a high-quality, early childhood development program that prepares income-eligible and at-risk children for success and a love of learning. Our program provides opportunities for social, emotional, physical and cognitive development for children from birth to five years old - serving 269 children and their families - and provides special services to pregnant women. Services include comprehensive health, nutrition, dental health, mental health, educational, social services, parent education and involvement opportunities, as well as additional services available to children with special needs. Respect for individuality, culture and diversity are valued.
Age Requirements: 3 to 5 years old
How to Apply: UCCAC Early/Head Start selects children for the program based on need, not “first-come/first-served”. The program is free to income-eligible families, with up to 10% over-income allowed. Families who apply will be contacted by a Family Worker from the center they are applying to schedule a Waitlist Interview. The center families apply is based on the school district where their child would attend once they are school-aged. The Family Worker will let families know what documentation they will need for the interview. Selections for the upcoming program year are made in early spring. Openings continue to be filled throughout the program year. Children applying to the Head Start program are eligible if they turn 3 years old by Dec. 1st of the program year or would become eligible upon their 3rd birthday after Dec. 1st. Children applying to the Early Head Start program (only in Kingston) must be at least 6 weeks old. Families applying are reminded to please update any address/phone number changes that occur once they have applied. Applications can be done online or downloaded online and mailed to UCCAC 70 Lindsley Ave. Kingston, NY 12401 or verbally by phone by calling (845)338-8750 ext. 118. Families need to re-apply each year after December 31st.
