CRCD Head Start Facilities Set to Begin Recruiting Door-to-Door

REGION 8 -  The Crowley's Ridge Development council will begin their door-to-door recruiting campaign later this month.  Their goal is to offer the opportunity for pre-school to qualified children in this part of Northeast Arkansas. 

The CRDC offers quality child development services such as early childhood services such as early childhood education, child socialization, parent involvement and more.  You can apply for CRDC Head Start's 2007-2008 program now in Craighead, Crittenden, Cross, Greene, Jackson, Lee, Poinsett, St. Francis and Woodruff Counties. CRDC Head Start personnel will be out in force conducting a series of door-to-door recruiting events in March and April.

CRDC'S Head Start program offers a variety of program options such as part day hours (8 a.m. - 2 p.m.), full day hours (6 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.) and full year services in designated areas.  To qualify for full day hours, parents or guardians must work at least 32 hours per week or be full time students carrying at least 12 hours per semester.

Children must be four years old at present or reach three years of age prior to September 15, 2004.  To complete the application process, parents must provide each child's proof of birth, immunization record, their own and their child's Social Security cards, proof of income, and health insurance (if applicable).

The 2007 door-to-door recruiting campaign will begin with the March 26-27 activities in Jonesboro, Forest City, Caraway, Turrell and Moro.

For April 2-3, Head Start recruiters will be recruiting door-to-door in Newport, Weiner, Monette, Trumann, Sifton, McCrory, Augusta, and Cherry Valley.

On April 9-10, door-to-door recruiting will be underway in the communities of Paragould, Wynne, Marion, Crawfordsville and Harrisburg.
