Head Start

The Head Start Program is an early childhood education program designed to foster the development of preschool aged children and to promote their school readiness. Our classrooms offer age-appropriate activities to support each child's development for language, literacy, mathematics, social-emotional, physical, cognitive, science, social studies and creative arts. Our program also works to ensure that children are up-to-date on a regular schedule of preventative medical and dental care, that our classrooms provide cultural enrichment, support parent involvement, and provide families with connections to resources and services they need.

We have classrooms in Siletz, Lincoln City, Salem and Portland. Classrooms operate for 3 ½ hours per day, Monday - Thursday, and are typically in session September - May. Children must be either age 3 or 4 years to enroll.

Applications are available at any of the CTSI Area Offices, can be downloaded from this website, or can be mailed to you by calling 1-800-922-1399 and asking for Head Start. Completed applications can be mailed to PO Box 549, Siletz, OR 97380, faxed to 541-444-2307, or dropped off at any CTSI Area Office or the CTSI Administration Building.
