Welcome to SCSD#1 Head Start! Head Start is a family-based program here to help the entire family by providing preschool, health and nutrition services, and family services. To start the application and see if your family qualifies for Head Start, please fill out the following information. Please keep in mind that your child needs to be at least 3 years old by August 1st to qualify for Head Start. After completing this online portion, please call the school to schedule an appointment to finish the application. If you have already had a child attend Head Start (even if it was a long time ago), you can skip this online application and just call the school to update your information. If you have any questions, please call us at (307) 352-3430. Thank you!
Head Start is a program that is not just for your child but for your whole family! At Head Start we are a partner to help families with their needs, interests, and goals. We are here to help you find opportunities to share and use your strengths and to be a support in addressing needs or barriers to your goals.
Head Start has classes in Rock Springs and Green River.

Only include information for a secondary adult if they are related to your child (the one who you are applying for) by blood, marriage, or adoption. If your partner is not your child's biological parent and you are not legally married, we still care about them, but you do not need to list their information here. If your child's biological parent does not live with you, there is a place below to indicate that.

Are there other adults in the household?

Please fill out as much of this information as you can. Try to give an idea of how much income your family has in a year before taxes. Head Start includes child support you receive as income. If you don't know your yearly income but you know your hourly wage and how many hours you usually work in a week, put that. We will talk more about this in person or over the phone.
Here you can share information about your child. This is the one you are applying for. This is also the only area that has a notes section, so feel free to add any questions or explanation from other areas as well as telling us a little bit about your child. Please let us know if your child has been screened at CDC since they turned 3, if they are on an IEP or IFSP and if you have any concerns about their development (for example, do you think they have a speech delay?).

Thank you so much for starting the application for your child for Head Start! The next step is to set up an appointment to complete the application. Please call us at (307) 352-3430 and we will schedule an appointment with you. Let us know that you have started an application online. Normally we would be doing the rest of the application in person at our school, but to comply with the safety guidelines associated with Covid 19, we will do the rest of the application over the phone until we are able to have parents in our building again, which we hope will be soon! If it turns out that your family does not qualify for Head Start, don't be discouraged. We can help you find other options for learning opportunities for your child.
