Getting a head start on a lifetime of learning.
The Family and Early Childhood Education Program (FECEP)/Head Start is a full-day program that primarily serves income-eligible children who are four years old by September 30. There are limited spaces available in select schools for children who are three years old by September 30.
If your family qualifies for free or reduced school lunch or you are currently receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, you are eligible to apply.
Enrollment is based on need; it is not based on a first-come, first-served basis.
FECEP/Head Start does not have classrooms in every elementary school, so your child may be accepted to a classroom that is not at his or her base school.
