We are looking forward to having your children attend our Head Start program on Monday, August 14th.  Your child may arrive at our center no earlier than 7:30 and no later than 3:30.  

This year our program has expanded to serve Early Head Start infants and toddlers ages 6 weeks to 3 years of age.  These centers are located in Woodlawn and Rison.  The hours for these centers are from 7:30 -2:30.  

The Woodlawn Center will start school on Monday, August 14th.  Due to construction delays, the Rison center will start on Wednesday, August 16th.  

Wishing you well, 

Cleveland County Head Start and Early Head Start Staff


Head Start is now accepting applications for children ages 3 to 5 years old for Rison, Kingsland and Woodlawn centers.  The child application is on this website or you may stop by our office and pick one up.  For any questions or inquiries, feel free to give us a call.
