Carbon County Child Development Programs serves children ages 3-5 through Head Start. This program provides children with learning activities that focus on social, physical, emotional, and intellectual growth. Head Start also offers services for the families of enrolled children. These services support parents in their role as a child’s first teacher since doing so helps to strengthen family ties. Head Start focuses on the developmental needs of the child and family. Enrollment is prioritized based on income eligibility; families with special needs or foster children are encouraged to apply.
