Applying for Enrollment
Applying for enrollment at Educare Arizona involves a two step process.
Step 1: Call Head Start
Begin by calling the Head Start or Early Head Start interest line operated by Southwest Human Development at (602) 468-3431. You will be asked a few questions to determine if this is the appropriate Head Start program for you.
If your family lives outside our service area, the person interviewing you will provide you contact information for the appropriate Early Head Start or Head Start program in your area.
Step 2: Complete the Application Process
If your family lives in the Balsz School District and is interested in the Educare Arizona program, your information will be added to our interest list, which we forward to the district family development team.
A Family Support Specialist at Educare Arizona will then contact you to complete the application process.
