Head Start is designed to serve children and families that demonstrate economic need. The program serves children who are three or four by September 1. 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.
