Head Start 80Head Start / Early Head Start centers are national child and family development programs for low-income children ages birth to five years old and their families funded by the United States Department of Health and Human Services.  The overall goal is to promote school readiness by enhancing the social and cognitive development of children through the provision of educational, health, nutritional, social and other services to enrolled children and families.

In addition to providing developmentally appropriate preschool experiences for young children, Head Start / Early Head Start partners with community agencies and resources to provide comprehensive services to the children and families in areas such as social, health, dental, nutrition, mental health, special education etc. Ten percent of enrollment opportunities are for children with diagnosed disabilities. Parents are recognized as their child’s primary educator and are invited to participate in the program in various ways. Opportunities for parent involvement include areas such as program governance, classroom observation and assistance, goal setting for their children and family to name a few.
