When Can I Register My Child?

Passaic Family Head Start currently serves 3 & 4 year old children.

We accept applications all year long.  Even if we have full enrollment, we will accept your application and place your child on the waiting list.

Your child must be three by October 31.  If not, they must wait until the following year to become eligible for Head Start.  Children who turn 4 before or after October 31, can enter the program at any time throughout the year as long as there is an available slot.
