THANKS FOR VISITING THE EARLY LEARNING COMMUNITY

The Early Learning Community's mission is to provide instruction that is intellectually rigorous as well as developmentally appropriate for birth through five-year-old children. Our role is to lay a solid foundation that will support our children and families from “cribs to colleges.” 
  RECRUITMENT!           RECRUITMENT!  RECRUITMENT! 

Charleston County School District Early Head Start/Head Start Programs are currently accepting applications for the 2014-2015 school year.  Families may apply if it includes a pregnant woman or a child ages birth through five years old.

The Early Head Start/Head Start programs are funded through the United States Department of Health and Human Services.  Each enrolled child attends at “no cost” and receives center-based and home-based services.

HOW LONG IS RECRUITMENT?
The recruitment process for these programs is ongoing.  However, the month of February is designated as “Recruitment Campaign Month”.  We hope to complete applications on many of our families in the upcoming weeks.

HOW DO I APPLY?
To apply, parents/guardians are asked to bring the following information:
  • Proof of income (total gross income for the past twelve months-W-2, 1040, two month of current pay stubs, SSI, TANF, Written Statements from Employer),
