General info

Knox County Head Start has served Knox County since 1965, providing comprehensive educational services focusing on school readiness and social-emotional growth; health, dental, and mental health services; services to children with disabilities; parent partnership and involvement; transportation; and daily nutritious meals.

KICHS thrives through its commitment to providing high quality services, and its recognition that parents are the first and most important teachers of their children.  KCHS respects parents, and works in partnership with parents to see that children and families have access to available services in the County, to assist parents as they work to support their child in getting ready to succeed in school, and to encourage family progress toward self-sufficiency.

All six Knox County Head Start Centers have received quality star ratings under the Step Up to Quality program, administered by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services - Bureau of Child Care Development.
