In an effort to reduce costs and our impact on the environment, NWA Head Start uses a "paperless" enrollment process. To begin the pre-application process, please click the appropriate link (English or Spanish) below and fill out the resulting form. If you need assistance or access to the internet, we provide application kiosks which are available at each of our centers and the Central Office. You may use these kiosks to pre-apply for enrollment or employment with NWA Head Start. Head Start Staff will happily assist those who would like help entering their information into the form.

Children from age three to five who are from families with incomes below the poverty guidelines are eligible for Head Start services.
