Head Start & Early Head Start
A safe and nurturing environment for our littlest learners.
Tri-County Community Action Agency provides Head Start and Early Head Start services to pregnant women and children and their families from birth to age 5 years, in eight towns located in northern Rhode Island and in nine towns located in Washington County.
Head Start is a federal early education program for income eligible families. Children participate in many services that promote cognitive, language and social-emotional development. We partner with parents and recognize you as your child’s first and most important teachers! With a variety of service options available, like part day or full day classrooms, we know we can find a schedule to suit the needs of your family.
All children enrolled in the Early Head Start, and Head Start programs receive free medical, dental, nutritional, and developmental screenings
