Head Start

Head Start is designed to serve children and families that demonstrate economic need. The program serves children who are three or four by September 1st. The Head Start program differs from other Early Education programs in that it provides specific support for the growth of the family and that a family must qualify to receive these services and have their child in this program. Head Start services are available in many of our elementary 4K classrooms and at the Chavez Learning Station. If you are interested in having your child participate in Head Start, please contact the Chavez Learning Station at 359-6078.

Head Start Fees:

  • As determined by the Federal Government, children/families that participate in this program do NOT pay fees of any kind. The Head Start Program is funded to cover the cost of all fees.
