Head Start is a comprehensive program for children and their families. Children with disabilities are encouraged to enroll. We offer two programs for children and families:
Home-Based: A home based teacher, child, and family work together to provide activities and experiences designed to meet the child’s needs in the home environment for 1.5 hours.
Center-Based: A teacher and assistant teacher provide an experience designed to meet each child’s needs in the classroom. Class sessions are half-day and last 3.5 hours.
Speech, hearing, vision, and developmental screenings, GED classes, Parenting classes, and various training classes. Transportation to the center may be provided for eligible children and each child receives a free snack, breakfast and/or hot lunch daily. Field trips and family days are taken throughout the year.
If you can answer YES to any of these questions, your child may be eligible for Head Start.
No, there is no charge for Head Start.
Parents are involved in decision making and in carrying out the program’s activities. They serve on Parent Policy Council and work as volunteers in the classroom. They also help to develop educational and social activities for their children.
