What to bring to your Enrollment Appointment:
Head Start enrollment is based on the needs of participating families. The “Family Size Income Guidelines” shown below are established annually by the U.S. Government. At least 90% of Head Start families must have income equal to or below 130%. Before over-income families can be accepted, Head Start must offer available enrollment slots to income-eligible families. Income requirements are not as stringent for children with special needs. Children who are experiencing homelessness, are currently in foster care, or households receiving TANF or SSI are automatically eligible for Head Start.
|Persons in Family / Household||Poverty Guideline 100%||130%|
Add 4,540 for each additional family member.
Children must turn three (3) before September 10th of the school year for which the family is applying. Five (5) year-old’s may attend Head Start if they are too young to attend kindergarten.
Children with special needs are often accepted into our program regardless of the family’s income. You can fill out the form below to reach out to our Enrollment Director.
