Our Head Start program operates out of 12 Early Head Start and Head Start locations across our two-county area. We’re excited to be a leader in providing outstanding educational opportunities for children and encouraging self-sufficiency in families. Throughout our history, we have successfully partnered with other organizations to improve access to services, avoid duplication of services, and maximize opportunities available to low-income individuals.
We also ensure that all children enrolled in our program receive nutrition, dental, health, vision, hearing, emotional wellness, and educational screenings, as well as appropriate follow-up and treatment when necessary. Highly trained teachers use a research-based curriculum daily to create a stimulating educational environment that prepares children for success in kindergarten and beyond.
We are actively enrolling students ages 0-5 in Head Start. The program runs from August to late June or early July.
Applications can be completed online (for first time applicants only) or via a paper application. Completed paper applications can be returned to any of our centers by mail or in-person. Applications can also be dropped off or mailed to our main office (604 High Tech Drive, Georgetown, TX 78626) or emailed to our enrollment coordinator.

Opportunities for Williamson & Burnet Counties (OWBC) announces their operation of the Child & Adult Care Food Program. The same meals will be made available to all enrolled participants at no separate charge and regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability in the course of the meal services.
The OWBC Head Start and Early Head Start are comprehensive child and family development programs that prepare children from birth to five years of age to become successful school students and productive members of society. OWBC’s Head Start was started in the mid-1960’s and has grown into a multi-faceted program leading the way in implementing researched based best practices in not only child development, but health, nutrition, mental health, and social services.
