Seneca County Head Start Centers enrolling

WSOS Early Childhood Centers in Tiffin and Fostoria will host open house events this August. The events will give parents and preschoolers a chance to learn about Early Head Start, Head Start and other early childhood education options in their area.

Open houses include:

  • Tiffin Early Childhood Center, 124 Ohio Ave. (Lincoln School), Aug. 8, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
  • Fostoria Early Childhood Center, 801 Kirk St., Aug. 10, 9 a.m.-noon and 1-6 p.m.

The Early Head Start and Head Start program provides no-cost preschool for children ages 0-5. Programs provide part-day, full-day and home-based learning options for families. Programs serve those who are up to 200 percent of federal poverty guidelines ($49,200 per year/family of four). Children in foster care are also eligible, regardless of income. Children with disabilities are welcome and accommodated at all centers.

While eligibility is based on federal poverty guidelines, program staff will look at each family’s situation and assist them in finding the best option for their family’s circumstances.

Parents are asked to bring household family income verification, birth certificate, immunization records, medical insurance card, social security numbers for each person in the household, and custody papers (if applicable).
