Head Start

facility information

The Head Start program provides grants to local public and private non-profit and for-profit agencies to provide comprehensive child development services to economically disadvantaged children and families, with a special focus on helping preschoolers develop the early reading and math skills they need to be successful in school.

 

Head Start programs promote school readiness by enhancing the social and cognitive development of children through the provision of educational, health, nutritional, social and other services to enrolled children and families. They engage parents in their children's learning and help them in making progress toward their educational, literacy and employment goals. Significant emphasis is placed on the involvement of parents in the administration of local Head Start programs.

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.
