Head Start Center at Brookhaven

The Head Start Center at Brookhaven, a partnership between the campus and Greater Head Start of Dallas — the first of its kind in the country — features a $3 million on-site model preschool facility run independently by Head Start staff. The center serves nearly 200 preschool-age children each year and offers comprehensive services in nutrition, health, social skills, physical coordination, self-esteem and pre-reading and pre-math skills. Brookhaven provides extensive support services for parents, including mentoring, career development and counseling, financial aid counseling, tutoring for college courses and college success strategies.

This community-college-based center also serves as a teaching facility for Brookhaven's Child Development and Teacher Preparation programs.

Families must meet eligibility guidelines for services. Please bring your latest tax forms, income information and your child's social security card and immunization record. Additional information about the Head Start application is available online.

We are currently enrolling children ages 3-5. Call 972-331-9565 or 972-283-6400 for more information, or visit Building E.
