Head Start is currently enrolling for the 2013-2014 school year.
Families need to income qualify, have a child with a disability or have extenuating family circumstances to be admitted into the program. It is a government program that serves children ages 3 to 5, and does not charge any fees for services.
Head Start does not provide transportation, however we have many families that volunteer to assist others. Community Presbyterian Child Learning Center collaborates with Head Start and provides transportation to their facility after the morning class.
Needed items for enrollment include: complete and updated immunization record, proof of birth, and proof of income for the year 2012. Once these items are obtained, applicants may call the Head Start office at (928) 474-2738 to set up an appointment with a staff member. When 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. Classes begin the last week in August.
We also provide an Early Head Start program that provides comprehensive home-based services to pregnant women and children birth to 3 years of age.
For more information on Early Head Start please call Janet Reese at (928) 951-2455.
