Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Head Start?

Head Start is a federal program, administered through the state of South Carolina, that promotes school readiness of children up to age five from low-income families. Our learning environments support childrens’ growth in language, literacy, and social and emotional development.

We emphasize the role of parents as primary caregivers and teachers to their children, and Head Start programs are designed to help build relationships within families, support a positive home environment and family well-being, and help children achieve success by building a firm foundation.

What is Early Head Start?

Early Head Start is designed for infants and toddlers, and enrollment may begin while a woman is still pregnant! Services are designed to encompass the full range of a family’s needs from before birth through a child’s third birthday.

You can trust Early Head Start to provide your infant or toddler with safe, developmentally enriching caregiving that prepares very young children for continued growth and success in life and in their upcoming education.

Following the same principles as the Head Start model for older children, Early Head Start provides support to parents (including mothers and fathers), emphasizing their role as primary caregivers and teachers for their children. We assist families on meeting their personal goals, achieving self-sufficiency and success that allows them to not just survive, but thrive.

Both of our Head Start programs emphasize local community resources and offer a variety of services and support for enrolled children and families.

How do I know if my child qualifies for Head Start or Early Head Start?

Head Start works with low-income families with children aged 6 months through 5 years, as well as children with special needs. Certain income qualifications and guidelines must be met for enrollment.
