Head Start

The Osage County Home Based program serves 28 children ages 0-5 and their families through comprehensive home visits. Enrolled children and their parent/guardian will meet weekly for 90 minutes in the home. The home visitor will provide educational services to share with the parent/guardian while modeling and interacting with the child. Educational home visits include a focus on nutrition, health, dental, transition, developmental and parent involvement. Socialization events occur two times per month, which include a group activity for all home based children and families to meet in a larger group setting.

ECKAN Head Start promotes health development for all children. In order for the program and the child’s family to be certain a child is healthy, a variety of screenings must be completed. All children in the Head Start program should receive the screenings and exams on the application checklist. Parents should review the checklist, before attending doctor’s appointments, to ensure they can advocate for their child, and ensure the appropriate screenings are completed.

Please click here for the application checklist for a list of the necessary screenings and exams.

If you have any questions, contact the Family Service worker at your local Head Start Center, or contact the Health Coordinator at (785) 242-5481 ext. 305.
