Since 1997, a competitive grant awarded annually through the Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Families and Children, has enabled KIRPC Head Start to grow and improve the Head Start program that now serves 133 low income children and their families. Eligible three, four, and five year old children receive comprehensive services to prepare them for school. There are 7 classrooms located at five sites in Newton, Jasper, and Pulaski counties. The Head Start locations are in Goodland and Roselawn for Newton County; Rensselaer and DeMotte in Jasper County; and Winamac and Francessville in Pulaski County.

School Readiness and Family Engagement are priorities for the program.
