The Head Start Program is a federally-funded comprehensive preschool program for children ages 3-5 years old and their families. There is no charge for the program, but families must meet income guidelines in order to participate. Classes operate August through May, 3 ½ hours per day in either the morning or the afternoon, Monday through Thursday of each week.
Children receive high-quality early education services, as well as two meals each day, referrals for affordable health care, and special educational support if needed. The families also receive support services and have access to many community agencies that provide help with food, housing, clothing, education, and job training.
There are two sites being operated by Volunteers of America Head Start. Both sites have received a 4-star rating from Qualistar. Please call or email the Family Service Worker at the site most convenient to you for enrollment information.
