Thank you for your interest in E Center Head Start programs. Please complete the inquiry form below. In approximately one (1) to six (6) weeks, an E Center Head Start Staff will contact you to arrange a meeting to complete an application. At that time, staff will need to verify your family income and your child’s date of birth. You will need to bring the following to the appointment:

  • Proof of income for the last 12 months or preceding calendar year; for example: W-2 form, pay stubs showing year-to-date, written statement from employer, unemployment statement, award letter for TANF (Cash Aide) or SSI (Supplemental Security Income), child support statement and/or Income Tax Form. (The documentation needs to reflect the last 12 months of income or preceding calendar year. This is a federally funded program and there are income guidelines that determine eligibility.)
  • Child’s birth certificate (must be a vital statistic birth certificate) or other official document with child’s name and date of birth (court document, immunization record, etc)
  • Other documentation, if applicable; for example: IFSP/IEP (special education services), proof of guardianship (if you are not the biological parent), restraining order, community agency referral, etc.

If you need assistance, have any questions or need to update your phone number or address, please contact our main office at 1-866-417-4255.
