"The services provided by this program are very comprehensive. Five major component areas serve the needs of the children enrolled and their families: Education/Literacy, Health, Parent Involvement, Family Services and Nutrition.
Head Start is directed primarily toward economically disadvantaged families having children ages three to five years old. All nationalities are served, with preference given to Nativen American families.
Head Start is funded to serve enrolled children in 14 centers operating within the Choctaw Nation service area: Antlers, Atoka, Bennington, Bethel, Broken Bow, Coalgate, Durant, Hugo, McAlester, Potea and Stigler. The Head Start program now operates five days a week, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at five of the centers, Broken Bow, Durant, Hugo, McAlester, Wilburton, Idabel, Wright City and Antlers"
