Head Start:

The Head Start Program is funded by the federal government.  Enrollment is based on income, family need, and availability.  

  • Child must be 3 or 4 years old by  September 1. 
  • Eligibility is based on household size and income.
  • PDF DocumentCheck to see if you are income eligible.   
  • Enrollment is prioritized based on income eligibility and other qualifying factors; families with special needs or foster children are encouraged to apply.

Families must meet federal income guidelines (100% federal poverty level.)  Children may be enrolled whose families are over income when there are additional risk factors. Ten percent of our slots for children are reserved for children with diagnosed disabilities.  Classes are Monday through Thursday. 

Head Start classes have 16 children, one certified Early Childhood Teacher, and an Assistant Teacher. Your help is appreciated and requested in the classroom. Please, come play with us. All that you need to bring is your smile. If you would feel more comfortable helping in another way, let us know. There are many opportunities to share your talents and skills.

We welcome your family to our program! Call Tracy at 248.956.5089 for information.
