About Head Start
Head Start is a nationally backed early childhood education program launched in 1965 to help communities meet the needs of disadvantaged preschool children. The program is designed to provide children of low-income families with a comprehensive program to meet their emotional, social, health, nutritional and psychological needs. Our holistic approach to serving children and their families greatly improves a child’s long-term personal growth and academic achievements. Our nationally rated centers support academic success in a positive learning environment where teachers, parents and students work together toward common goals.
Serving at-risk children ages birth to five, Head Start prides itself in being the nation’s premier early education program. Established within Central Kentucky Community Action Council, Central Kentucky Head Start serves children and families within the counties of Hardin, Larue, Marion, Meade, Nelson and Washington. Our early educational intervention facilitates positive outcomes by preparing children for successful entry into kindergarten. We are here to teach, to lead, and to serve.
