PathStone Child and Family Development program is now taking applications for Early Head Start and Head Start.

Children must be age eligible and meet the income guidelines. Families who receive unemployment benefits, work at a low paying job or receive SSI are a few of those who may be income eligible.

Early Head Start serves children from birth to 3 years old. Pregnant Women are also eligible for the program. Families living in the Panther Valley, Palmerton, Jim Thorpe, Lehighton and Weatherly school districts are eligible.

Head Start serves children ages 3 to 5. Families living in the Panther Valley, Jim Thorpe, Palmerton, and Lehighton school districts are eligible.

There are only a few openings available for both programs so call immediately to enroll.

It is the policy of the Head Start program not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or handicap in its admission procedures, educational programs, activities or employment as required by Title IX, Section 504; Title VI, The Age Discrimination Act of 1975; the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986; and the American With Disabilities Act of 1992.
