Each child enrolled at Headstart must have an application form completed. A deposit agreement of $150.00 is due upon enrolling your child. $30.00 of that fee is a non-refundable application enrollment fee, and the remaining $120.00 will be put towards your first biweekly payment for your child. This is refundable up until 4 weeks before your child’s start date. A $40.00 supply fee is due by June 25 for the upcoming year or upon enrolling your child. This fee is non-refundable.
Children need time to adjust to new environments, thus we recommend giving your child two opportunities to become familiar with their new surroundings (routine, staff & activities) before their first day. During the first visit, we suggest a parent/guardian spend about an hour with their child and participate in our program. During the second visit, we suggest a parent/guardian stay for a short period of time and then leave the child with us for two-three hours. Please keep in mind this process may vary depending on the age and developmental level of the child.
