Welcome to North Hudson Community Action Corporation Head Start/ Early Head Start! I am excited that you have chosen the Program for your family this year.

The North Hudson Community Action Corporation has sponsored our Head Start/ Early Head Start Program for the past 54 years. We are proud to announce that our Head Start/ Early Head Start Program has been awarded a 4 star rating from GROW NJ Kids.

Our program currently serves 367 Head Start, 104 Early Head Start children and families, and 30 expectant mothers throughout the East Newark, Guttenberg, Harrison, Kearny, North Bergen, Secaucus, Union City, Weehawken, and West New York communities. Children with disabilities participate with all children in program activities and receive special services when available.

Head Start / Early Head Start recognizes that parents are the primary educators of their children. You are their role model and their guide and we, as staff, plan to support you in that role. I encourage you to advocate for your child and be integrally involved in your child’s school experience by volunteering in the classroom, attending parent committee meetings, and assisting with special activities at your center. We look forward to a wonderful year!
