Head Start is currently enrolling for the 2005-2006 program year.
Head Start is a preschool and family referral program for low-income families and for children with disabilities. It is a government program that serves, free of charge, children 3 to 5 years old.
Items needed for enrollment include: complete and updated immunization record including a negative tuberculosis skin test; proof of birth; and proof of income for the year 2004.
Once these items are collected, applicants may call the Head Start office to set up an appointment with a staff member.
The child will then be placed on a waiting list until an opening is available.
The Head Start staff encourages interested parents to get the needed items for enrollment and call for an appointment as classes are filling quickly for fall.
