Head Start

Sheboygan County Head Start is a federally funded grant program for families meeting the federal guidelines for poverty. Head Start has been helping families in the community for forty-two years. It is unfortunate that all the eligible families cannot receive Head Start services. In the 2012/2013 school year, there were 45 income eligible children on the waiting list who never received services; each year those numbers continue to increase.

Head Start is a “family development” program offering many services, including:

  • A kindergarten readiness, developmentally appropriate preschool for three and four year old children
  • Developmental screening for all children
  • Hearing and vision screening for all children
  • Fluoride varnish application three times per year
  • Early identification of problems leading to early intervention
  • Starting the referral process when problems are identified
  • Nutritious breakfasts, lunches, and snacks provided

Helping families:

  • Identify strengths
  • Identify needs
  • Develop family goals
  • Identify community resources

Sheboygan County Head Start has two classrooms in the Generations Building in Plymouth; a three-year-old Head Start classroom which operates from 8:00-11:30 (Breakfast and Lunch provided), and a 4K/Head Start Classes in Collaboration w/ the Plymouth School District which operates from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m., four days a week, breakfast, lunch, snack, and rest time included.
