LUZERNE/WYOMING COUNTIES: Luzerne County Head Start Inc. is accepting applications for the 2013-2014 school year. Luzerne County Head Start offers a range of comprehensive programs for children from birth to age five and pregnant women. It is funded by a variety of sources, including federal and state, school district, United Way, community groups, organizations and individuals. Head Start works with low-income children and families to help them achieve their full potential and attain school readiness.


Free preschool services for three- and four-year-old children include education, health, family support, parent involvement, transportation on a limited basis and opportunities for children with disabilities. Families must meet specific criteria, including age and income eligibility, to qualify. Parents and guardians are encouraged to apply early, as selection for the 2013-2014 school year begins in the spring.


Luzerne County Head Start, Inc. also offers PreK Counts, a state-funded preschool program, in partnership with several school districts in Luzerne County. Services are similar to Head Start preschool services, however, income eligibility is set higher and no transportation is provided.


Luzerne County Head Start provides Early Head Start services in select areas of both Luzerne and Wyoming Counties. Early Head Start is a full-year, home-based program providing child development and family support to pregnant women and children from birth to age three.


To apply, or for more information, call 829-6231, 1-800-551-5829 or visit www.lchs.hsweb.org.
