1. Basic Information on Head Start (updated 6/12/17)

Head Start is a FREE child care & pre-school program for children between the ages of 0-5 years old as of 09/01/2017 for program year 2017/18. There is no potty training requirement to attend this program (except Sycamore site).
Effective January 1, 2016, due to passage of Senate Bill 277, parents will no longer be able to waive immunizations based on personal beliefs for children attending child care and public and private schools. For your child to be eligible for a center-based Head Start program, you must have proof of all required immunizations upon entry.
For more information please visit the following website: http://www.shotsforschool.org/laws/exemptions

We are currently accepting applications for program year 2017/18.

Eligibility is based on federal income poverty guidelines; TANF/CalWORKS recipients; Foster Care; Homelessness and children with diagnosed disabilities.
*2017/18 expected start dates: Part day HS (ages 3&4) classes start 8/16/17. Early Head Start & State full day are year round and continuously enrolling. State start is 7/7/17.
