Head Start is a no-cost comprehensive school-readiness program providing education, health, nutrition, and family services to qualifying children who turn age 3 or 4 by September 1st. We promote the highest degree of services by following the Head Start Federal Program Performance Standards, which are among the most in-depth early childhood standards in the country. Our whole-child, family-based approach provides cultural sensitivity and ensures that children and families leave Head Start with the desire and ability to be lifelong learners and achievers.
At Head Start, our belief is that every child, regardless of circumstances at birth, has the ability to reach their full potential; children with disabilities are welcomed!
