Eligibility & Enrollment

Is my child eligible?

Head Start and Early Head Start are family and child development programs for low-income families.  Family income is one key factor in determining eligibility.  The federal poverty guidelines are used to evaluate family income.  In addition, Early Head Start and Head Start programs must make at least 10% of their enrollment opportunities available to children with disabilities who are eligible for Part C services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act in Minnesota.

You are eligible for Head Start and Early Head Start services if you meet the income guidelines and:
  •  You have children from birth through 5 years, or
  •  You are pregnant, or
  •  You have children with special needs with an Individual Education Plan (IEP), or Individual Family   Service Plan (IFSP), or
  •  You have foster children with high risk factors

How do I register my child?

Print off the Application and return to your Local School District, along with Proof of Income (1040, W2, or Check Stub), Proof of Residency, Proof of Birth (Birth Certificate, Hospital Record, or Baptismal Record), and Proof of Guardianship if applicable.

Other items needed but not required for enrollment: Immunization Records, and proof of Medicaid, Chips, or Private Insurance.
