Head Start At Play

Who We Are

  • Central Texas 4C, Inc. is a non-profit agency which has served Central Texans for over 40 years.  Most people call us simply "4C" which stands for Community Choices in Children's Care six.  4C operates twelve Head Start centers which annually serve over 500 children ages 0-5 in the cities of Temple, Belton, Killeen, Harker Heights, and Troy, Texas.  (Check the LOCATIONS tab for each center's ages served.  Some serve only 0-3, some serve 3-5 and some serve 0-5.)  Fort Cavazos, the largest military base in the world, is adjacent to our cities.  Some of our Pre-K centers are in collaboration with our ISD partners and some of our 0-3 centers are housed in the public schools to serve student parents who are working hard to graduate from school.  Our centers are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and are regularly honored by H-E-B's "Excellence in Education" Award in the early childhood education category.

       

What We Do

  • Besides providing developmentally appropriate education to income eligible children ages 0-5, we provide to the Head Start child and family: Health and Nutrition Services, Mental Health Services, Disability Services, Transition Services, Social Services, Literacy Services and other parent education opportunities.
     
    We accept applications all year. Our waiting list is not a first come/first served list.  It is a criteria points list so we can assure the taxpayer that we are serving the neediest families first.  There is no cost for eligible families.
