HOW IS MY CHILD SELECTED FOR HEAD START?

After the initial enrollment appointment, all children are automatically placed on the waiting list. Selection meetings are held throughout the program year to accept children for the next program year. Children are chosen utilizing the Selection Criteria Form. The families with the most points are chosen first. When the family is accepted, an acceptance letter is mailed out giving detailed information about the next steps the family must take to have their child begin at Wilmington Head Start, Inc.
