Midcoast Maine Community Action Head Start and Early Head Start provide comprehensive education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to income-eligible children and their families. The focus of the program is to ensure that children are ready to start school while addressing all aspects of a child’s development and learning.

Families can now apply for the 2018-2019 Head Start school year. The Head Start Program is for ages 3 to 5.

Early Head Start programs, for ages birth to 3, are available as a home-based program or a center-based program.

There is no cost to the family. Children with special needs are welcome. For more information, call 442-7963 or 800-221-2221, or visit www.midcoastmainecommunityaction.org.
