Housing Questionnaire for Head Start Programs
This Housing Questionnaire should be used by Head Start staff as a part of the enrollment process to identify any child who is homeless.
GUIDES & FACT SHEETS
This guide by the NYS Early Childhood Advisory Council (ECAC) provides information on determining eligibility for children in temporary housing, and their rights and protections. You can also find a handy chart where community-specific information about early care and education programs can be included and then shared with parents.
FORMS & TEMPLATES
Pre-K classrooms have a maximum size at twenty children, but can be expanded. The New York State Education Department (NYSED) will grant a class-size variance to allow a 21st child in the classroom if that child is in temporary housing. To get a variance, the Pre-K program should complete this Pre-K Class Size Variance Request.
