EightCAP – Head Start & Early Head Start


EightCAP, Inc. Head Start is a federally-funded program for children in Gratiot, Ionia, Isabella and Montcalm counties.

Early Head Start is a child development program that is offered to pregnant women, infants, and toddlers under 3.  There are two program options available for families, Center-Based or Home Based.


Center-Based: Children attend the center four days per week, Tuesday thru Friday during the school year, and weekly home visits during the summer.  


Home-Based: families receive a weekly home visit and may attend playgroup twice per month. 


Head Start preschools provide children with a safe environment, nutritious meals, health care, and the skills they need to succeed in kindergarten and beyond.  Children attend early childhood centers four half days each week.


The Head Start program focuses on child development, family support, and medical and nutritional care of enrolled children.  Both programs are free of charge to children whose family’s income falls within certain guidelines and to children with disabilities
