Welcome To Head Start!

Jumpstart Your Child's Education with RCS Head Start Pre-K!

RCS Head Start has proudly served children and their families for 45 years!

As a federally funded program, RCS Head Start aims to prepare children from low-income families for success in school and beyond by offering a holistic approach to early learning and development.


At RCS Head Start, we recognize the critical importance of early childhood education in laying the foundation for lifelong success. Our program focuses on fostering the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development of children through a variety of age-appropriate activities and experiences. From engaging classroom instruction to hands-on learning opportunities, we strive to create a supportive and stimulating environment where children can explore, discover, and grow.


In addition to academic preparation, RCS Head Start provides comprehensive services to support the needs of the whole child and their family. This includes access to nutritious meals, health screenings, dental care, and mental health services, as well as resources and support for parents to promote family well-being and stability.


We are committed to providing every child with the tools, resources, and support they need to reach their full potential and achieve success in school and in life. By investing in early childhood education and supporting the well-being of children and families, we are building a stronger, more vibrant community for generations to come.

Our Community: We are currently funded to serve about 25% of the Head Start eligible children in our service areas overall.

Our Classrooms: The average class size is 18, leaving the child/staff ratio at 1:9. This enables our educators to spend more quality time and individualized care for each child. 

Our Services: We offer comprehensive child and family services including screening and follow-up in the areas of health (including dental, medical & mental health), social services, parent involvement, and education.

RCS Head Start serves Randolph & Alamance Co. with a total of 6 locations!
