Are you interested in a preschool program for your young child? We are accepting applications now. Children must be 3 or 4 years old on or before September 1st. Four year olds are selected and enrolled first.

Head Start is a federal and state funded program for low-income families and for children with disabilities or special needs.

  • There are morning and afternoon sessions and some extended day classrooms.
  • Working parents and students qualify for the extended day classrooms. Your child will receive an excellent preschool experience and your family will receive assistance and information for health and social services needs.
  • Head Start encourages parent involvement at all levels. We want you to be an active parent. Your child will appreciate it too!
  • Transportation is not provided, though assistance with TriMet transportation may be available.
