Head Start Program


The Office of Head Start (OHS) works to prepare young children from local low-income families to succeed in both school and life. The Head Start and Early Head Start Programs promote a child's development through comprehensive early learning, health, and family well-being services.

Childcare Resources operates our Head Start Program through a partnership model with local schools, child care programs, and the community.
