Head Start/Early Head Start

The First Five Years

Every child deserves the best start she or he can have, no matter their circumstances. That’s why Lutheran Services Florida (LSF) has, for more than 30 years, provided the highest quality early childhood education to children who otherwise might have been left behind.

VW1A0635The first five years of a child’s life are absolutely essential in preparing her or him for a healthy, happy, and successful future. When children receive the quality early childhood education they deserve, not only do children fare better, but communities do, too.

LSF’s commitment to early childhood education is simple: to enhance the development of very young children between birth and five years of age (the most critical time of growth) and to promote healthy family functioning.

Children in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Duval, and Palm Beach counties are served by LSF. For more than 30 years, we have been the leading provider of early childhood education, offering comprehensive education, family services, disability assistance, and health and nutritional services to all eligible children and families.
