About the Provider


Head Start is a child and family development program for income eligible preschoolers (ages 3-5) and their families. Children receive a high quality early education opportunity through participation in either our center-based preschool or our home-based option.  All children receive a physical, dental, and numerous other health and developmental screenings to assure that the child is healthy and ready to learn. Center-based children attend school four days each week. Transportation is provided to and from the child’s home. Home-based children receive 1 1/2 hour home visits in their home each week. These children come together two to three times each month for play groups and field trips.
