Preschool and Childcare

GLCAP offers no-cost and low-cost center-based and home-based learning through Head Start to help children prepare for kindergarten through quality preschool opportunities. Full-day, full-year options are available.


Head Start Center-based Preschool and Childcare

Head Start early childhood centers provide care and preschool services for children ages three through five. Children enrolled in the program attend classes Monday through Thursdays during the school year. Centers provide a daily meal and snack along with hands-on activities. Children are provided with medical, mental health, nutrition and dental services. Families also receive at least two home visits and two parent-teacher conferences.

Though eligibility is in part determined by income, we look at each family's circumstances and will assist them in finding the best options for their childcare needs.

Centers are available in Lucas, Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca and Wood counties.

Eligibility guidelines
Though eligibility for Head Start programs is in part determined by income, we look at each family's circumstances and will assist them in finding the best options for their childcare needs. Call for details.
