The Head Start program provides a pre-school learning experience for three and four-year old children from low-income families and children with disabilities, coupled with a holistic emphasis on health, nutrition, social services and special services for children with identified disabilities through full parent involvement and participation.
Ninety percent of the children supported by Head Start must come from low-income families. The income guidelines are determined by the federal government and are revised annually. Ten percent of the children enrolled in our Head Start Program must be allocated for children with disabilities.
Programs operate four days per week, four hours per day, September through May, in the six counties region.
