How Do I Enroll a Child in Head Start?
Determine if You’re Eligible
Children from birth to age 5 from low income families are eligible for Head Start. Use the household income calculator to determine if your child is eligible.
Find a Local Head Start Program
Use the Head Start Locator to find a Head Start program near you.
- Each provider has a different application process. Contact the provider for application instructions.
- You must complete and submit one application per child by the provider’s deadline.
- Applying does not guarantee admittance into a Head Start program.
If there is not enough space for your child at the time you apply, you can ask to be put on a waiting list.
