Greater Louisville Head Start
The premise of Head Start is simple: every child, regardless of circumstances at birth, has the ability to reach their full potential.
Working in partnership with Family & Children's Place, Greater Louisville Head Start is a free program helping nearly 450 families each year by:
- Enhancing each child’s growth and development
- Strengthening parents’ ability to nurture their child
- Connecting families with needed community resources
- Providing children with educational, health, and nutritional services
Early Head Start is designed for income-eligible children from birth through age 3, with families choosing between daily programs at learning centers around Louisville or weekly home visits. Head Start is designed for income-eligible children from ages 3 to 5 and is offered only at learning centers. Both Early Head Start and Head Start are inclusive of children and families with disabilities and/or special needs.
