Atchison County Head Start is accepting enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year.
Head Start is a federally funded preschool.  Acceptance is based on income. Children must be three years old before July 31, 2018.
Center hours and days are 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday-Thursday. These are the same hours as the public schools in our area.
Transportation is provided depending on family’s location in the county.
The main goal is to have children and families school ready by providing a safe, healthy learning environment.
Head Start collaborates with our local public schools to provide some health screenings as well as special services a child might need.  It also works with children and families individually on their goals to become successful members of society.
If your family or a family you know would benefit from a free preschool experience, contact Patty at the Rock Port center at 660-744-2616 or Linda Stump at Community Services Inc. in Maryville at 660-582-3113.
