head start & early head start

The Head Start and Early Head Start programs are state and federally funded early-childhood education programs that provide services to pregnant moms, infants and toddlers, and pre-school children through the age of five.  The programs provide family and child development activities at 14 sites in the five county service area.

In addition to the classroom activities provided, Head Start services also include developmental screenings and assessments, medical and dental exams and follow-up, home visits designed to support the families' role as the child's primary educator, parent involvement activities, and many more.

Eligibility requirements include income, child's age, special needs of the child, families' employment status and special needs of the family.

Head Start continues to strive to promote intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth and development of children while supporting parents in their role as the primary nurturer and educator of their child.
