Head Start, a child development program under the direction of Health and Human Services, is designed for children 3-5 years of age from income eligible families and is tailored to meet the needs of the child, their family and the community. Head Start offers a comprehensive, developmental program based on the individual needs of each child, which will help that child develp socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. The parent's role in a child's growth is recognized as vital and parent engagement in the program is strongly encouraged.
Head Start is for the special needs child also. Under a Congressional Mandate, special needs children receive the full range of services offered by Head Start, including educational, health, and social services; staff workers are trained to work with these children and their families. The Congressional Directive defines special needs as the following: Children with developmental delays, hearing impairments, visual impairments including blindness, serious emotional disturbance, orthopedic impairments, autism, traumatic brain injury, other health impairments or specific learning disabilities that require children to need special education and related services.
Head Start will attempt to assist as many families as possible in meeting their transportation needs.
