Head Start Programs

The Salvation Army Head start and Early Head Start programs give your child the same advantages every child deserves, a chance to learn in an educational, creative, and exciting environment.  We provide comprehensive services to low-income children and families which include; healthy meals and snacks, assistance with medical and dental care, educational field trips, and support services to the family. Parent involvement is encouraged and children with disabilities are welcomed.  We offer two center base options; half-day and *full-day (full-day parents must be working or in school full-time).
