Head Start

What Can Head Start Do for Your Child

Head Start and Early Head Start provide educational activities, medical and dental referral services, nutritious meals and holistic support for the entire family. Priority is given to families whose income falls within the federal poverty guidelines or children with disabilities. Head Start also offers a prenatal program for expectant mothers.

For the safety of our students, families, and staff, a number of health and safety procedures have been instituted in our Head Start and Utah Community Action Programs. Read the full reports below.

How to Apply

Note: We are still accepting applications for our Head Start and Early Head Start programs. If you have had a child that was already a student in Head Start or Early Head Start you do not need to fill out the online application.  Please contact us at 801-359-2444 and our staff can assist you.

Step 1: Complete an Application. 

Please complete the 2020-2021 online application form by clicking on the link below.

Step 2: Phone Interview.

Once you’ve submitted the online forms, you must finish the enrollment process during a phone interview.  A specialist will need to verify your child’s age, your household income, your child’s immunization record and your proof of address before confirming enrollment.  You will be sent a link to choose a date and time that works for you. 

Please bring the following documentation to your appointment:

If you have any questions please contact us at:

    • Verification of the child’s age (Birth Certificate and/or Medicaid card, baptism or blessing certificate, Foster Care placement letter, Hospital Certificate, I-94 or passport.)
    • Child’s immunization record
    • Proof of income for the previous 12 months (tax forms for the previous year are preferred, W-2 forms, check stubs, child support, unemployment, Social Security or military income, etc.)
    • Proof of Residence (Recent copy of utility bill, rental agreement or mortgage statement in parent’s name that lists the address.)

PLEASE ALSO BRING: A copy of your child’s most recent physical and dental exam (completed in the last 12 months), as well as medical and dental provider information.
