Riverbend Head Start & Family Services

Head Start and Early Head Start are locally-operated, federally-funded programs that provide high-quality early childhood education for income-eligible families.  Madison County, Illinois families voluntarily enroll their children ages birth through five in our programs because they want to improve their lives. Our qualified teachers create a safe, healthy environment where children learn the skills necessary to be successful in kindergarten and life. Riverbend Head Start & Family Services is teaching children, strengthening families and enhancing communities. We invite you to join us in our mission.
