NEW HAMPTON- Parents can register their children for the New Hampton Head Start Program next week. Head Start is a full day program that offers a safe learning environment for 3 and 4 year old children.  Cindy Schoulte with the Northeast Iowa Community Action Corporation says Head Start services are funded by federal and state grants and are free for families who qualify.

Schoulte says class sizes typically consist of 16 to 18 children per classroom. Head Start is an inclusive environment for children with disabilities and transportation is available in some areas.  Schoulte says those interested in registering their children for next year, should remember to bring a few important documents.

Registration will take place on Tuesday, February 18 from 2:30 to 5:00pm.  The Head Start facility is located at 201 N. Locust Street in New Hampton.
