Preschool Details: Head Start is a federally funded program that offers comprehensive developmental services for children and families with an emphasis on health, nutrition, education and parental involvement. Head Start focuses on the individual needs of each child and provides learning opportunities by planning developmentally appropriate activities through a ‘hands-on” curriculum. Each child is assessed three times in the program year to document the progress he or she has made in all developmental areas. SEVCA’s Head Start program has 7 classrooms in four towns throughout Windsor County: Chester, Springfield, Windsor, and White River Junction. Each classroom provides a Teacher, Teaching Assistant, a Food Service Provider, and access to a Family Services Specialist. Recently, our program’s high standards of quality inspired an exemplary Federal Review, resulting in the much-desired Certificate of Compliance. New systems put into place addressed the following content areas: Family Services, Education and Disabilities, Mental Health and Nutrition.
Age Requirements: 3 to 5 years old
How to Apply: When completing an application, families will need to provide proof of the child’s age (birth certificate or immunization record from the physician’s office), immunization record (which must be up-to-date according to the child’s age) and verification of household income (pay stub, income tax return, unemployment, SSI or State funded benefits, TANF, Reach-up, etc).
