The Southern Seven Head Start Program is federally funded for children ages 0-5. The Traditional Head Start Program is for children 3-5 years of age. Currently we serve 500 children. An Education Program is provided to help prepare children for transition into Kindergarten. Health Screenings are provided as well as 2/3 of the nutrients a child needs each day. Transportation is provided at most locations.
The Early Head Start Program is specially designed to meet the unique developmental needs of children between the ages of birth to 36 months. Early Head Start currently serves 70 children and is offered at Cairo Head Start, Mounds Head Start, and Rustic Head Start.
The Home Based Option is also available which provides an educational experience to the children and families during weekly visits. Twice per month a special day will be held at the center for all parents and children.
