Acelero Learning Head Start is holding open enrollment for its preschool program for the 2017-18 school year.
Acelero Learning is a free, full-day, full-year program. The program uses an early education curriculum to ensure development for children at this age. In addition, a family curriculum called “Shine On, Families” is used to replicate learning at school in the home via positive interactions and activities between parents and children.
There are extended day services for before and after school care, geared toward working families.
Qualifying families must meet income eligibility, live in Monmouth or Middlesex counties and have a child who is three, four or five years old who missed the cut off date for kindergarten.
Centers are located in Freehold, Neptune, Red Bank, Asbury Park, South Amboy, Carteret, New Brunswick and Perth Amboy. There are currently openings at the Freehold, Neptune, Asbury Park, New Brunswick and Perth Amboy centers.
Head Start is a program of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. For more information, call 732-570-5639.
