What We Do


Our mission: Enrich the lives we touch.

Head Start and Early Head Start are comprehensive child development programs that serve children from birth to age 5, pregnant women, and their families. They are child-focused programs and have the overall goal of increasing the school readiness of young children in low-income families. We have been providing services to children for 44 years in Clay County. We also serve children in Cloud, Ottawa, Republic, and Washington counties.  We are licensed by the state of Kansas.
