Head Start Registration Underway
August 20, 2015
The San Angelo Independent School District Head Start program is currently registering students for the 2015-2016 school year. Registration is taking place Monday through Friday at all three Head Start Centers.
The SAISD Head Start program offers quality early childhood education at no cost to families who meet the 2015-2016 Federal Poverty Income Guidelines. Head Start focuses on Family Services, Parent Involvement, Quality Educational Services, and services for children with disabilities, even severe disabilities.
Day and Rio Vista also have Early Head Start for children 0-3 years of age and the Pregnant Mom’s Program which serves 16 pregnant women a year. The Pregnant Moms program ensures moms have access to prenatal health care and receive adequate training on child development, breastfeeding, lactation, nutrition, SIDS, shaken baby, and more. If accepted into the program, the mother will receive care and training throughout her pregnancy, and when the baby is born, the child will be enrolled into the Early Head Start Program.
Children must be 3 years of age by September 1, 2015 to qualify for Head Start, and must also meet one of the following requirements to qualify:
- Meet the 2015-2016 Poverty Income Guidelines to qualify.
- Foster/Kinship Care
