Head Start Preschool

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

Head Start provides comprehensive services to help prepare children for kindergarten. Children receive educational services that include individualized curriculum based on identified needs. In addition, they receive health screenings, social-emotional support, nutritious snacks & meals.

Family Support Specialists work with families to develop and achieve family goals, while teachers provide 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.

Head Start accepts applications year-round, but classrooms fill up quickly. While priority is given to eligible children, higher income children as well as children with special needs, are encouraged to apply.  Click to begin the enrollment process.


The Head Start school year currently runs from August to May, offering both full and half day classes.

Though eligibility for the Head Start program is in part determined by income, everyone is encouraged to apply! No child will be excluded because of race, religion, gender, national origin or special needs conditions.
