HCCAO Head Start/ Early Head Start
Annual Report to the Public
Highland County Community Action operates a publicly funded preschool/infant-toddler program that serves primarily low-income children. We enroll pregnant women, infants, and toddlers in our Early Head Start Program and 3-5 year olds in our Head Start Program who meet eligibility guidelines. We reserve at least 10% of our enrollment for children with disabilities.
Our Head Start program operates in two separate facilities – Hillsboro and Greenfield. Part-day children attend 3 1/2 hour classes 4 days a week, in either the morning or the afternoon. Full-day children attend 7-hour classes 4 days a week and every other Friday.
Our Early Head Start Program is made up of both center-based and home-based options. There is a toddler classroom in the Hillsboro Center for children 18 months – 36 months. Our home base component consists of weekly home visits and bi-weekly socializations.
