Start is a federally funded program for 3 and 4 year old children. Families must
meet federal income guidelines (100% federal poverty level.) Children may be enrolled whose families are over income when there are additional risk
factors. Ten percent of our slots for children are reserved for children with
diagnosed disabilities. We anticipate that next year's program will be full day, Monday through Thursday. Confirmation should come in July once the federal grant has been approved.
your family to our program! There is a great Parent Resource room in the
building, where we encourage you to relax after you drop off your child. There
are wonderful movies on different topics of interest, brochures about local
resources, and a coffee pot for your convenience. There are rocking chairs and
a changing table, too, if you want to bring your little one. There is no
babysitter available, so the children still need your attention. Call Tracy at 248.956.5089 for information.
