It is through the generous support of the Payson community that continues to assist us in providing the best quality of services to our children and families.

We have begun enrollment for the 2008-2009 school year. Head Start is a preschool and family referral program for families with low income and children with disabilities. Families need to income qualify, have a child with a disability or have extenuating family circumstances to be admitted into the program. We are a government program that serves 3- to 5-year-old children and do not charge any fees for our services. Head Start does not provide transportation, however we have many families that volunteer to assist others.

First School Steps Preschool and Community Presbyterian Child Learning Center collaborate with us and provide transportation to their facilities after our a.m. class.

Needed items for enrollment include: complete and updated immunization record including a negative TB skin test and chicken pox vaccine, proof of birth and proof of income for the year 2007.

Once these items are obtained, applicants may call the Head Start office to set up an appointment with a staff member. Once the application process has been completed, the child will be put on a waiting list until an opening is available. We encourage you to get the needed items for enrollment and call for an appointment, as classes are filling quickly for fall.

Thank you!
