Give Your Child a Head Start

We offer free Pre-K resources for children under age 5.

Building your child's future with you.

Head Start provides free health, education and development services to families with young children. A federally funded program, we work with families to recognize their unique characteristics, cultural values and strengths, and offer services like:

  • Individualized learning
  • Vision, hearing and developmental screenings
  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • Health services
  • Parent education
  • Community resource information

We offer services in Clay, Lincoln, Turner and Union counties. These services are available in-home or at one of our local centers and some are offered on a full-day, year-round basis.
