Head Start of Yamhill County provides services for children in a comprehensive, family-focused, early childhood development program. Our preschool program serves children ages three through five who meet Federal Poverty Guidelines. Our Early Head Start program serves pregnant moms, infants, and toddlers up to age 3.
The cornerstone of our program is parent involvement and education, which are vital to reaching Head Start's national goal of social competence for children of low-income families. We are a human development organization. We help families to be successful!
On Wednesday, September 11th, George Fox students and

Garden making it into a near park like setting! Their efforts
helped our center to shine for the return of children and families
for the 2019-2020 school year! Thank you George Fox for your
commitment to our community!
