Online KCSL Head Start & Early Head Start Application

Enrolling in KCSL’s Head Start program means you want your child to be ready for school. And at KCSL, we believe every child deserves a chance for a better life. Our Head Start program provides early childhood education and other family services to the most vulnerable families. The program supports the physical, social emotional and cognitive development of children ages 3 to 5-years-old. We encourage stable family relationships, enhance physical and emotional well-being and establish an environment to develop strong cognitive skills. In addition to quality education services, KCSL offers health, nutrition and other services that are responsive to your family’s ethnic and cultural heritage.

KCSL supports positive parent-child relationships and family well-being. The role of parents and caregivers as their child’s first and most important teacher is always encouraged. Together, we’re building a stronger southwestern Kansas community by empowering children and families with essential skills for success.
