Head Start

Head Start is a federal program for preschool age children from low-income families and children with special needs.  Children who attend participate in a variety of educational activities that help prepare them to be school ready when they enter kindergarten.  Children participating in the program receive many services such as; physical, dental, and vision exams, developmental screening, and nutritious meals.

The ICAP program serves 250 children and their families in Hancock, Henry, and Rush counties. All 14 classrooms are full day and the children attend Monday through Friday. We have locations in New Castle, Middletown, Tri Elementary, Knightstown, Milroy Elementary, Fortville, and Greenfield.

Parent involvement is a crucial part of the program. Parents are offered opportunities to participate in a variety of ways, bus monitor on bus routes, volunteering in a classroom or serving on a committee, in a parent group, or on Policy Council.
