Description: Head Start is a FREE preschool program that is funded by Orleans Community Action Committee, Inc. through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Most children are 3 & 4 years of age when they enter the program. A minimum of 90% of the total enrolled children must meet low-income eligibility standards, and at least 10% must be children with diagnosed disabilities. The program offers comprehensive services to children and families, which promotes literacy skills and social, mental, emotional, and physical needs. Parents are the cornerstone of the Head Start Program. The Head Start staff recognizes that parents are the child's first teachers. We encourage parent involvement in all aspects of programming from classroom volunteers to serving on decision-making committees.
