Head Start and Early Head Start

Due to COVID-19 we have made modifications to our program options. See below for more detail.

Community Action Head Start and Early Head Start programs offer high-quality early childhood education to children ages birth to age five who live in Washington County. 

Head Start and Early Head Start programs provide comprehensive services to enrolled children and their families. These services include health screenings, nutrition, social services, and other family resources based on your family's individual situation.

Families whose income is less than 100 percent of the current federal poverty guidelines are prioritized, though all families regardless of income are welcome to apply.

We also welcome children with special needs and children who are learning English.
