About the Provider

Description: Head Start provides a comprehensive early childhood development program for three-and four-year-old children from families in greatest need. Ninety percent of program participants must be from families having incomes at or below 100% federal poverty level; and at minimum 10% of the total children served must have an identified disability. Head Start children participate in a wide range of educational activities designed to enhance school readiness, and receive developmental and sensory screenings; cognitive, language, social/emotional and physical development assessments; individualized work plans and appropriate direct services, including daily USDA approved meals and snacks. Support is also provided to families to ensure ongoing, preventive medical and dental care. Additionally, Head Start’s Family Advocates provide case management support, assisting parents in addressing social service needs, family management and parenting skills. The Head Start Program serves 213 families in the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle, Fluvanna, Louisa and Nelson Counties each year.

Head Start classrooms operate six hours per day, Monday through Friday, September through May, and follow local school calendars.
