UH Maui College and Head Start of the Maui Economic Opportunity are partners in the UH Maui College-MEO Head Start, a preschool for 3-5 year olds on the west end of the Kahului campus. First priority for this free program for eligible families is to children of UH Maui College students. Hours are 7:30 am - 3:00 pm, Monday through Thursday and Friday 7:30-12:00. Regular attendance is a requirement, therefore children are encouraged to attend school daily to fully benefit from program services. A breakfast and lunch, plus an afternoon snack, are provided.
Interested families may apply at the MEO Head Start office in February for the next school year by specifying the UH Maui College center, as there are several centers in the central area.
To apply, families must take the child’s state birth certificate and proof of the previous year’s income (4-6 current pay stubs or TANF financial printout and previous years’ W-2 or income tax returns.)
