Head Start

Head Start is a comprehensive early childhood program for eligible children 3-5 years old.  Head Start provides educational, medical, dental, nutritional, and mental health services to help children develop socially, emotionally, and cognitively.  Classes are also available for parents.

There is no cost to any family whose children have been accepted into the Head Start program.

Center Base Option

Part-day & full-day classes begin in September and end in May. Breakfast and/or lunch is provided along with a snack depending on class.

Home Base Option

The home base option provides comprehensive Head Start services to children and their families primarily in the child's home through intensive work with the child's parents and/or guardian.  The home base option follows the same performance standards and component areas as the center base option.

We accept applications for both center and home base on a continuous basis.  Enrollment is determined in the spring for the following program year.
