The new Lower  Sioux Early Head Start and Preschool program will open mid-late July.   We are an evidence-based early learning program for children ages 0 to 5.   Our program provides wrap-around services that integrate education, physical health, nutritution, mental health and family/community engagement.  It is our mission to raise the next generation of Dakota language speakers and to promote school readiness by enhancing the social, emoitonal, and cognitive development of the most at-risk children and families.

We will offer center-based and home-based learning, as well as expectant family learning!


Application are open to ALL interested families.   Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis.  Program applications are available at the Lower Sioux Government Center front desk.   For more information, please contact Mariah Wabasha at 507-697-8255 or email her at:
