Holyoke Chicopee Springfield Head Start is a multi-service agency, providing comprehensive programs, services and support to local communities, families and children.  We provide early childhood education, to prepare preschool children for kindergarten, and for life.

We offer traditional part-day early childhood programs at no cost to eligible families. In addition, HCS Head Start offers a full day option for eligible parents working or enrolled at school full time. Fees for the full day option range from sliding scale to full tuition.

We provide family and parent support, and opportunities for families to engage in a child’s education and in the HCS Head Start community. We also provide family and parent programs including cooking, money management, parenting classes, a healthy relationships program, and more.

Since its inception in 1965, Head Start has improved the lives of more than 32 million children and their families.

This agency has been an inspiration for my life and made the quality of life better for my whole family.
