InsuranceCommunity Action Head Start is a federally funded preschool program available to income-eligible 3- to 5-year-olds. Applications are being accepted now for center-based Head Start services in Logan County.

Head Start is designed to provide a variety of opportunities that help a child develop socially, intellectually, physically and emotionally in an age-appropriate manner. Head Start children receive nutritionally balanced meals, medical and dental examinations, as well as screenings for hearing, vision and speech.

Parents are asked to bring the following items to complete an application:

  • Completed 2009 tax forms or W-2s

  • Copy of child's birth certificate or medical card

  • Proof of child support (if you receive it)
