Wartrace Head Start is now accepting applications for fall enrollment.
Head Start is a free child development program for children and their families. Families usually meet financial eligibility requirements or require special needs. To apply, parents will need verification of income and proof of child's birth. All interested parents may sign up.
There are a limited number of slots available. Children not accepted will be placed on a waiting list. Parents are responsible for transportation to and from school.
The program is Monday thru Friday and there is an attendance requirement. For Head Start, the child must turn 3 before Sept. 30. For Early Head Start the expectant mom can enroll prior to the baby's birth. The age for children in the Early Head Start center is 6 weeks to 3 years old.
