Head Start


Head Start programs support children's growth from birth to age 5 through services centered around early learning and development, health, and family well-being. Head Start staff actively engage parents, recognizing family participation throughout the program as key to strong child outcomes.


Head Start services are available at no cost to children ages birth to 5 in eligible families. Centers are located within the following school districts: Ann Arbor Public Schools, Lincoln Consolidated Schools, Whitmore Lake Public Schools, Ypsilanti Community Schools. Head Start preschool services work with children ages 3 to 5 and their families. Early Head Start services work with families that have children ages birth to 3, and many also serve expectant families. Many programs operate both Head Start preschool and Early Head Start services. Programs deliver child development services in center-based, home-based, or family child care settings. All Head Start programs continually work toward our mission for eligible children and families to receive high-quality services in safe and healthy settings that prepare children for school and life.
