Enrollment

About Enrolling in Head Start

Our program offers year-round enrollment for children who have turned three- or four-years-old prior to September 1st of the program year.  All applicants must meet Federal guidelines as it relates to income.  Please review the enrollment application or contact your county office for more information about availability.  

Enrolling Your 4-Year-Old 

If you are interested in enrolling your four-year-old child in the Head Start program, please contact your county’s Board of Education office to complete the application process.  In general, someone from the BOE will take your application and advise you of the steps moving forward.  If you have further questions or need advice on getting the process started, please feel free to contact the Appalachian Council Head Start office for your county, or our central office at 304-344-8098.

 

Enrolling Your 3-Year-Old

If you are interested in enrolling your three-year-old, please contact the Appalachian Council’s Head Start office for your county—you do not have to contact the BOE to enroll your three-year-old.
