  • K Street Center: 1821 K Street | Lincoln, NE 68508 (within the west wing of the Kaplan University building)

Center-based services are also provided at Wahoo Elementary School in partnership with Wahoo Public Schools. 

Head Start programs: 

  • Promote school readiness
  • Support children in getting a Head Start on school
  • Provide health and nutrition services
  • Offer innovative child development services for all families
  • Provide parental assistance in identifying community support

Head Start began more than 50 years ago to address the need for early childhood education that is available to ALL families. Since then, we have been leading the way on developing solutions that work for families and communities. Our innovative programs have been developing new ways of meeting the early childhood education needs of children.
