Head Start/Early Head Start recruiting new students

The 2010-11 Head Start/Early Head Start programs offered through the Cenla Community Action Committee are recruiting and pre-registering Rapides Parish children 5 years old and younger in throughout May.

Any 4- or 5-year-old child eligible to return to Head Start, but who will be attending pre-kindergarten, should not re-enroll in the Head Start program. Children already enrolled in the Head Start/Early Head Start Program are encouraged to remain in the program.

Parents enrolling children in the programs for the first time should provide a state-issued birth certificate, income verification (2009 W-2 form, welfare budget sheet and/or Social Security statement), Social Security numbers for all household members and immunization records.

No child will be excluded from participating in the program due to race, color, creed, sex, national origin or disability after certain guidelines have been met. Services will be provided for disabled children.

For more information, call Gloria B. Collins at (318) 487-5877 or (318) 487-5878; or contact one of the area Head Start facilities between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
