The Sulphur Springs Independent School District Head Start program is currently recruiting for eligible children for future participation in the program, according to Rita Taylor, program ERSEA and parent, family and community engagement specialist.
The Head Start program, located at Douglass Early Childhood Learning Center, is federally funded to serve 179 children ages 3 and 4 years from low-income families. Children with mild, moderate or severe disabilities are also accepted.
While there is not currently a vacancy, the Head Start program typically has a waiting list for qualified applicants who are admitted as spaces become available. The program currently has no students on the waiting list, thus those parents interested in enrolling their children who meet eligibility guidelines are encouraged to apply to Head Start.
“Any time we have a vacancy, we have to fill the slot. Nevertheless, families must also meet income guidelines. I currently don’t have any students on my wait list,” Taylor reported.
