Program Options

  • Mountainland Head Start, Inc. provides two quality Kindergarten-Readiness educational programs. 

    Early Head Start:

    Our Early Head Start program is a home visiting service for pregnant mothers and children birth to 3 years of age. These home visits occur for 90 minutes once a week. Their focus is to support and educate parents on the development of their children. We also provide monthly opportunities to visit with staff and other parents to build social support and discuss early childhood development and learning. Mountainland Head Start offers these services to families in Juab County, Santaquin, and Payson. Socialization activities will occur at the Nephi Center. If you are interested in Early Head Start services in other areas of Utah County, please contact Kids on the Move.

    Head Start:

    Our traditional Head Start program is a classroom-based preschool service for children 3-4 years of age. There are two different classroom options for these services.

    1. Part Week, Part Day Services: These classes are 3 1/2 hours a day, Monday through Thursday, and are offered in the morning and afternoon. This option is available at all of our sites except one of our Orem centers.

    2. Full Week, Extended Day Services: These classes are 6 1/2 hours a day, Moday through Friday, with Friday being an early release day (4 1/2 hours). This option is offered at all of our sites except Nephi.

    Bus stop service may be available to transport children to the center in Nephi only.
