Online Parent Portal

Accepting Online Applications for Head Start and Early Head Start

The Online Parent Portal is a unique centralized intake process that makes it easier for Head Start and Early Head Start programs to receive and process applications.

It is a valuable online resource that lets parents create an account, apply for services and communicate with agencies. All they need is access to a computer with internet access and a user ID and password.

A user ID is created the first time a parent accesses the site.

In addition to creating an online application, parents can upload verification documents, as well as select their preferred Head Start site locations.

The information can be accessed by agency staff, processed, verified, converted to an actual application and automatically placed on a waiting list.
