(Press Release) — On March 2, 2020 the Head Start/Early Head Start Program will begin to actively accept applications for the next school year, SY 2020-2021.

Head Start/Early Head Start is a federally funded pre-school and infant/toddler program that provides comprehensive services to eligible children and families. The center-based program includes developmentally appropriate learning, family engagement, nutritious meals, health services and support for children with special needs.

Head Start serves pre-school children ages 3 to 4 years old on Saipan, Tinian and Rota. Early Head Start serves infants and toddlers age 6 weeks to 36 months on Saipan.

To be considered for an enrollment slot at the opening of the 2020-2021 school year, the initial application period will end on June 19, 2020. Age eligible children on our current SY 19-20 waitlist will need to submit an updated application for the new school year. The school (eligible) age cutoff date is Sept. 30, 2020; children who will be 5 years old on or before that date shall register for kindergarten.

The Head Start Program will conduct recruitment outreach on Saipan at the Nutrition Assistance Program office in As Lito during the March NAP issuance from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.
