ICAA’s Head Start program serves children ages 3-5 in Burnett, Clark, Rusk, Sawyer, Taylor, and Washburn counties. Head start helps children with school readiness and encourages parents to be active in their children’s learning. The program also helps parents with their own education, literacy, and employment goals. Head Start provides services and information around areas such as education, health, nutrition, social, and more.
Eligibility: Head Start serves children ages 3-5. Families with incomes below the federal poverty guidelines, children from homeless families, and families receiving public assistance such as TANF or SSI are eligible. In addition, foster children are eligible regardless of their family’s income. Up to 10% of children/families can be over-income, so everyone is encouraged to apply!
