How to Apply

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 our Enrollment team at 801-972-2337 and an Enrollment Specialist can assist you.

Step 1: Complete an Application. 

Please complete the 2019-2020 online application form by clicking on the link below.

Step 2: In-person Interview.

Once you’ve submitted the online forms, you must finish the enrollment process in person.  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:

    • 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.

What Head Start Can Do for Your Child

Head Start and Early Head Start provide educational activities, medical and dental referral services, nutritious meals and self-reliance services 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.

Eligibility


Head Start and Early Head Start accept applications year-round for children 0-5. For Head Start, younger children can join our waitlist. If applying for Early Head Start we serve children 6 weeks to 3 years old.

Head Start is an equal opportunity program and does not discriminate against race, religion, or sex. Utah Community Action does not deny placement on the basis of a disability or its severity to any child. We do not provide transportation for students, however, assistance with carpooling or bus/TRAX vouchers are available.

If you have questions, please call the Head Start hotline at 801-972-2337 or e-mail us at erseateam@utahca.org.
