About the Provider

Description: Head Start began in 1965 as part of President Lyndon Johnson’s “War on Poverty”. Federally funded by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, this early childhood program for income eligible and special needs pre-school children and their families provides comprehensive services in the areas of early childhood education, health, and family and community partnerships. Both center-based and home-based options are available.

Parents are a child’s first teacher and have the longest lasting influence on their lives; therefore, parent involvement is a vital part of the program. Families with children ages three to five are encouraged to apply anytime throughout the year. Families whose children have special needs are also encouraged to apply.

Research shows that Head Start produces long term benefits and significant cost savings by reducing grade retentions, school dropouts, delinquency, substance abuse, and referrals to special education.

CAP Services provides Head Start services in Marquette, Portage, Waupaca, and Waushara counties.

Additional Information: Open SEP - MAY Initial License Date: 9/1/2000.
