The programs purpose is to provide educational opportunities for children to develop skills necessary for school readiness, to support children’s physical, social-emotional and cognitive development. The programs assist families with information on parenting skills and help parents move towards self-sufficiency. They also provide special services for children with disabilities. Head Start preshool services are provided to children in a classroom setting (center-based). Early Head Start services are provided in a classroom setting (center-based) and / or through regularly-scheduled home visits (home-based).
As mandated by the Federal Government, Head Start and Early Head Start primarily serve low-income families. Low-income is defined as those who are at or below the current year’s poverty guidelines. Nevertheless, up to 10% of those enrolled can be from families who are over-guidelines. Children with documented disabilities are given special consideration. Enrollment is based on the needs of the child and the family. Several factors are taken into consideration.
