West Ashley Head Start students

Charleston County School District (CCSD) is currently accepting applications for Child Development, Head Start, and Early Head Start programs for the 2018-2019 school year. Children who enroll in these programs attend at no cost to the family.

In CCSD, Head Start and Early Head Start students receive services from birth to three years old, and pregnant women receive center-based and home-based services. To participate in Head Start and Early Head programs, families must meet certain income guidelines, and children must meet specific age requirements. Both programs are funded through the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

To apply for Head Start or Early Head Start, families are asked to provide:

• Proof of their gross income for the past 12 months
• Proof of the child’s age
• Proof of residency
• A current South Carolina Immunization Certificate
• Medicaid card or private insurance
• Current physical exam (must include the blood lead level and hemoglobin) and current dental exam
• Proof of pregnancy (for pregnant woman applying for Early Head Start)

CCSD also offers full-day Child Development/Pre-Kindergarten programs for students who will be four years old by September 1 of the year of enrollment. Applications are now being accepted for the upcoming academic year. Parents should apply at the elementary school where their children are zoned to attend.

Space is limited; applications for all Early Learning programs are now available on the CCSD website.
