What is Head Start?

Head Start is a federally funded center based preschool program for low-income children and their families. Children ages 3 to school age qualify for this program based on income, need, and age. Therapy is provided for children with Special Needs while in the classroom setting.


What Can Head Start Offer Your Family?

Head Start offers you a sense of belonging, other support services, and a chance to be involved in activities to help your whole family. You can take part in training classes on many subjects, such as child rearing, job training, learning about health and nutrition, and using free resources in your own community. Some parents learn the English language; others learn to read.
