Head Start’s preschool program has openings at Martic Elementary School and Millersville University for the 2019-2020 school year and will soon be accepting registrations for the 2020-2021 school year.
The program is for children up to age 5 whose families meet income eligibility guidelines. Homeless children, foster children and families receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) funds for disabilities are eligible, regardless of family income.
Head Start provides early childhood education that emphasizes language, math, science, art, physical activity and social skills to prepare children for school success. Special services are available to ensure that all children can fully participate in the program.
Head Start also offers family support services, nutritious meals and health screenings.
