How to Enroll in Head Start
Enrollment in the Self Help, Inc. Head Start program is ongoing. Preschool children age 2.9 to 5 whose parents reside in a Self Help service area and meet the Income Eligibility guidelines can enroll in the program. Working families who do not meet those income guidelines and have a child age 2.9 to 5 may still be eligible for Head Start through the State’s Childcare Voucher Program if they meet that program’s income guidelines. Under the State’s Childcare Voucher program, families pay a sliding fee based on total family income.
