Head Start Partnership

  • Five full days of preschool classes for 3- and 4-year-olds are available through a partnership with Head Start.  Families receive PAT personal visits.  Head Start eligibility is necessary.

    In order to be eligible for this program there are three requirements that must be met:

    • You have to reside within the Ferguson-Florissant School District
    • Meet the income eligibility guidelines

    To qualify, families must make either the eligible income amount or lower according to their household size.  If you receive some form of public assistance (TANF-Cash or Child Care Subsidy) or (SSI Income) and make over this amount, please call to see if you qualify.
