Community Action Head Start, a
free program for income-eligible families with children from
birth to age 5, is recruiting in Logan County for the 2013-2014
Head Start knows that parents are the first and most important
teachers of their children. The program welcomes parents as partners
in the Head Start experience.
Head Start is a federally
funded preschool program that serves income-eligible families and
children between the ages of 3 and 5 years.
Early Head Start is a child development program that
serves income-eligible families and children, including pregnant
mothers, infants and toddlers to age 3.
Logan County Head Start provides center-based preschool services,
and Early Head Start provides home-based services.
Children do not have to have a disability to qualify. Head Start
welcomes all eligible children. Additional services, including
screenings and access to medical, dental, vision services as well as
community services are what sets Head Start apart from other child
development and preschool programs. Transportation is also available
to children and families so they can participate and receive full
benefit from the program.
