Free Early Learning Programs for Children Birth through Age 4
Children in foster care and many children living in relative care are eligible for Early Head Start, Head Start and ECEAP (the Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program - pronounced "e-cap"). All children covered by a foster care or TANF grant are eligible, as well as other children living with relatives who have low incomes. Apply as early as you can in the spring or summer, since there is limited space. There is no cost for these programs and you are encouraged to apply!
