Head Start students at Pimlico Arts Center Baltimore, MD

We firmly believe in the power of early childhood education to change lives

Children from low-income families who attend full-time, high-quality early childhood education programs have an edge over their peers who don’t share that same access. That early education is associated with higher cognitive test scores, higher rates of high school and college graduation, higher employment rates, higher earnings, and lower arrest rates.  

Through 42 Head Start classrooms at seven sites across Baltimore City, we provide preschool education with certified teachers and coordinated services for families.

Registration is still open for the 2018 - 2019 school year

We accept new students throughout the school year.  Acceptance is based on meeting eligibilty requirements and on available space in classes. You must live in Baltimore City and your child must be 3, 4, or 5-years-old.

You will need to complete a pre-registration packet that includes proof of income, Baltimore City residency, your child's age, and health documentation for your child, including, immunizations,  physical and dental exams. It may look like a lot of paperwork, but our staff can walk you through it all.

Contact us to sign your 3, 4, or 5-year-old child up for full-day Head Start preschool.
