Early Head Start – This program is for infants and toddlers up to their third birthday and for expectant mothers and their families. To qualify for Early Head Start, a family’s income must be at or below the federal poverty level, which currently is $24,600 for a family of four.

Head Start – Head Start is a preschool program for 3-, 4- and 5-year-old children from low-income households. A family’s income must be at or below the federal poverty level for children to enroll in Head Start. The program is free to income-eligible households.

Pre-K Counts – This full-day program for 3-, 4- and 5-year-old boys and girls is intended to give them an early educational boost.

Preschool – CDC also offers a preschool program for 3, 4- and 5-year-old boys and girls that is identical to Pre-K Counts but has no income eligibility guidelines. Tuition fees are based on three, four or five days of enrollment per week.
