Head Start Pre-K Accepting Applications


Oswego County Head Start Pre-K continues to accept applications for September.

The program enrolls three- and four-year-old children and is provided at no cost to families.

Students from Oswego County Head Start Pre-K’s Phoenix Center took a field trip and visited the local fire station to learn about fire safety.  The children were then able to ask questions.  School-readiness, family involvement, and meals are all part of a typical day in Head Start Pre-K.

Head Start’s goal is to promote school readiness through hands-on learning, active play, and nutritious meals and snacks.

Family involvement is strongly encouraged.  Parents have a central role in the program as partners in the educational process. There are opportunities to be involved in parent committees, volunteer in the classrooms, as part of program development, and attending workshops.
