Our Mission: To promote the school readiness of children three to five years of age by providing comprehensive services, while emphasizing the role of parents as their child’s first and most important teacher.
Head Start is a federally funded program that provides early childhood education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and their families.
Kosciusko County Head Start (KCHS) provides at least six-hour classes Monday through Thursday during the school year. We have a classroom in Mentone Elementary, Madison Elementary, Claypool Elementary, Lincoln Elementary, and classrooms at our Warsaw location. Classrooms are licensed, accredited by the National Association of the Education of Young Children, and on Level 4 Paths to Quality. Transportation is provided by parents to and from centers. KCHS partners with parents to monitor their child’s health, nutritional, dental, and mental health needs and their progress in the development of all school readiness skills. Eligible children must be 3 years old before August 1st.

Wonderful teachers and wonderful administration! My son has learned so much in Head Start and now my two little ones in EHS are learning like crazy as well because of this awesome opportunity!
Great activities for students and their families! Never disappointed.
Many stimulating activities for the littles to grow and learn, and did I mention best staff EVER!
Both of my kids were blessed to be able to come to Head Start! Both have learned so much. I couldn’t have asked for a better way for my kids to get a head start before school! The people who work here are very kind and smiling every time you see them! ♥ this place!
