THE CRITERIA
As mandated by the Federal Government, Head Start and Early Head Start primarily serve low-income families. Low-income is defined as those who are at or below the current year’s poverty guidelines.

Enrollment is based on the needs of the child and the family. Several factors are taken into consideration.
