Head Start


City manager Joe Dennen talking to headstart student

City manager Joe Dennen stopped by to see children and thank teachers for all their hard work during Teacher Appreciation Week!

Head Start began as a Summer Program in 1965. Its main focus was on the social development of children. In 1970 parents began having rights and responsibilities associated with their children being enrolled in Head Start. In 1990 Head Start serves 60,000 children.

Fayette County Head Start is a free preschool program for children between the ages of 3 and 5. Head Start offers morning and afternoon sessions. Head Start provides breakfast, lunch, and a snack. Children receive developmental, speech, vision, and hearing screenings onsite. We serve all eligible children, including children with disabilities. We provide transportation to both site locations.
