Western Egyptian Economic Opportunity Council, Inc.

Head Start

Established in 1965, Head Start promotes school readiness for children, ages three to five, in low-income families and enhances children's social and cognitive development by offering educational, nutritional, health, social and other services. Programs actively engage parents in their children's learning and help them make progress toward their own educational, literacy and employment goals. Parents play an important role in the administration of local Head Start programs.

Head Start actively recruits and enrolls children with disabilities and is committed to the individualization and total inclusion of children with professionally diagnosed disabilities. Head Start operates under the Federal Performance Standards and is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Performance Standards are categorized under Early Childhood Development and Health Services, Family and Community Partnerships, and Program Design and Management.

You must live in either Randolph, Perry, or Monroe County

*Attention all parents, due the possibility of inclement weather, please make sure you give us your cell phone number so we may quickly contact you regarding school closings.
