HEAD START

 

HeadStartLogoThe Chesterfield-Marlboro Economic Opportunity Council, Inc. (CMEOC) Head Start Program is a comprehensive child development program providing services primarily to low-income children, age three to compulsory school age attendance, and their families in the bi-county area. To help enrolled children achieve their full potential, Head Start provides comprehensive health (physical, mental and dental), nutrition, educational, social, transitional, literacy and other services. Parent involvement is a very important and key element of all services.

While Head Start is intended to serve primarily children whose families have incomes at or below the poverty line, or who receive public assistance, Head Start regulations permit up to ten percent of the children in local programs to be from families who do not meet these low-income criteria. The act also requires that at least ten percent of the funded enrollment slots be made available to children with disabilities.

The agency operates six centers and has a funded enrollment of 506 children. Total number of families served during a program yearis 499. The center locations and number of children served are: Pageland 93 children; Ruby 37 children; Cheraw 134 children, McBee 14 children; Blenheim 171 children and McColl 57 children. Two primary eligibility criteria are income guidelines published by HHS and age. (Initial enrollment is three years old on or before September 1 of the school year). Children are transported to and from school daily and served breakfast, lunch, and a snack.
