NeighborImpact Head Start Accepting Applications for 2016-2017 School Year

– NeighborImpact Head Start is now accepting applications for enrollment for the 2016-2017 School Year. Children who live in Crook and Deschutes Counties may be eligible for Head Start, a free, high-quality pre-school and family support program. To register, families must meet income eligibility requirements and submit an application and income documentation.

“NeighborImpact’s Head Start program supports each student’s developmental needs and works with parents to encircle them with support services such as parenting skills, financial management training, and medical and dental services,” says Dani Wyeth, Head Start’s Family and Community Partnership Manager. “Our goal is to increase school readiness and provide children and families with the skills and resources they need be successful.”

NeighborImpact Head Start has 24 classrooms in 8 locations including Redmond (3 locations), Bend (3 locations), La Pine (1 location), Prineville (1 location). Free school bus transportation is also available in most areas. Parents are encouraged to fill out an application online by visiting our website at www.neighborimpact.org/services/head-start.

“We have seen an uptick in enrollment for 2016-2017 thanks to our Head Start families helping to spread the word and through a more efficient online enrollment process,” says Wyeth. “But we still have space available at our 8 locations across Crook and Deschutes Counties.”

For more information, parents can contact NeighborImpact Head Start at 1-866-292-0143, 541-323-6527, or via email at hs-support@neighborimpact.org.
