Early Head Start

The Head Start program is a federally funded program that can help build a foundation for your children’s success. Head Start’s overall goal is to promote school readiness for children and parent involvement for low-income families. Head Start education programs are income-based, so there are no costs for eligible families.

Parents are an essential part of the Early Head Start program and the activities that it entails. Therefore, parent participation is expected to be able to enroll in programming. In addition to aiding in early child development, Head Start learning programs are also built to promote positive parent-child relationships.
