Receive high-quality early childhood education at your centers or in your home.
Tennessee’s Early Childhood & Family Support program provides services to eligible families with children ages 6 weeks to 5 years in Head Start centers across the state.
Head Start is a comprehensive program that offers quality early education in and out of the home, parenting education, health and social-emotional wellness services, nutrition education, and family support services.
While we guide the very young as they learn and play, we also share our expertise with parents. By actively participating in their children’s early education, parents enhance their development and create strong family bonds.
In Tennessee, Telamon offers:
- Early Head Start (childcare for children 0 to 3 years old)
- Migrant and Seasonal Head Start: Childcare and preschool for children of eligible farmworkers ages 0 to 5 years old
Each child receives a personalized educational program at the Head Start centers based on their specific strengths and needs. Through structured learning activities, play, and group learning experiences, children enter kindergarten with learning and social skills that rival that of their classmates.
