For children ages 3-5, Head Start offers a preschool center-based program in all seven counties. A home-based program is available depending upon location.

C.E.F.S. Head Start operates 16 Head Start classrooms in twelve locations. Each center provides at least a half-day session in either the morning and/or afternoon Monday through Thursday. Each session lasts 3 1/2 hours and includes a healthy meal and snack. Transportation assistance is provided in the form of bus services, stipends, or coordinating services with other schools.

In every classroom, a certified teach plans daily lessons with developmentally appropriate activities that advance the children’s self-confidence, problem solving skills, and social development. Indoor and outdoor activities are provided along with computer experiences and field trips.

The home-base program is available in Clay and Effingham counties. Home-base sessions are 1 1/2 hours once per week with up to two group activities held each month. In the home-base program, a Parent Educator comes to the child’s home for educational activities that involve both the parent and child.
