Head Start Child Development

Head Start Preschool

Head Start is an income based, free, family-focused preschool program. We accept children ages three to five years old  - including children with special needs.

Head Start provides comprehensive services to help prepare children for Kindergarten.  Children receive educational services, family support, nutritious snacks & meals, health screenings, and mental health services.

Family Support Specialists work with families to develop and achieve family goals, while teachers supply school readiness skills such as language development, math & science activities, and creative arts.

Head Start thrives on parent involvement.  Whether it is volunteering in the classroom, attending parent group, or participating in Policy Council, volunteering helps strengthen your relationship with your child as well as contribute to your child's overall development.

To see some of the fun learning activities that take place in the classrooms, check out our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/hhwpcac.

Our school year currently runs from August to May and we offer both full and half day classes.

Head Start is always taking applications, year round, but please apply early as classrooms fill up quickly. A limited number of higher income children can be served each year, so all should apply. Special needs children are also encouraged to apply.
