Your child or children may be eligible for the Head Start Program.  Head Start is the only program of its kind, offering all comprehensive services to Income Eligible children free of charge for over 40 years.  Our school year runs from mid-September to mid-May.

This is an opportunity to participate in a child development program.  The program helps to meet the needs of preschool children in the areas of education, health, nutrition, and family services.  Your involvement as a parent/guardian is also encouraged.

Over one hundred children will be enrolled in center-based programs in Fergus, Musselshell, and Wheatland counties.  Ten percent of our openings are available for children with special needs.  Also, with the recent reauthorization of Head Start; up to 35% of enrollment may come from families' with incomes between 100% - 130% of the poverty level.

We are currently accepting applications for children who turn 3 years old before September 10 or 5 years old after September 10.  We will be having early enrollment in June.  Our fall enrollment may be limited as a result.
