Head Start and Early Head Start

Head Start educators work with families and children to implement developmental and socialization strategies that work best for you and your child. Our classrooms are bright and inviting and are designed to maximize creativity and learning. Healthy lunches and snacks are provided to children daily. In addition to providing educational and nutritional resources, children will have access to health and dental screenings at no cost, and families will be provided with health referrals and referrals for emergency services whenever needed. We recruit families 12 months per year.

Eligibility Guidelines: The programs service families with income at or below the federal poverty guidelines, children in living in foster care, and families experiencing homelessness. Ten percent of enrollment slots must be filled with children with a diagnosed disability.

The Early Head Start program provides center-based early education services to 24 children in three classrooms at three locations. Early Head Start also offers home-based services to 34 children and families including 8 prenatal clients. Families residing in the towns of Johnston, North Providence, Smithfield, North Smithfield, Burrillville, Glocester, Foster, and Scituate, are eligible for the northern RI Early Head Start program.

All centers are licensed by the Department of Children, Youth and Families and participate in the Rhode Island Quality Rating and Improvement System, Bright Stars. Four centers are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.

The Tri-County Community Action Agency Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) provides supplemental foods, healthcare referrals and nutrition education for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, and to infants and children up to age five who are found to be at nutritional risk.
Upon enrollment into the WIC program, we will complete a nutritional assessment for you and your eligible family members. We will then offer education on healthy eating, monthly vouchers for nutritious foods including eggs, milk, cheese, peanut butter, beans, tuna, fruits, vegetables, whole grain breads, rice, iron fortified cereals, and juice as well as many other valuable resources. Breastfeeding and lactation support and education are also available through the WIC program.
