South Coast Head Start, a no cost early childhood educational program for low-income families, is currently open and still enrolling children for our current school year!

South Coast Head Start, a program of Oregon Coast Community Action, offers education and support services to qualifying families at no cost! The program offers fun, researched-based curriculum, healthy meals, inclusive services for children with disabilities, and health screenings with follow-up support for all enrolled children. Services are available for pregnant mothers to children age 5.

We have expanded program options with Baby Promise and Preschool Promise in select areas. Priority for enrollment is based on child age, family income, disabilities, and other factors that demonstrate a need for services. Children in foster care, experiencing homeless, or receiving public assistance are automatically eligible for services.

The Head Start approach to school readiness means that children are ready for school, families are ready to support their children’s learning, and schools are ready for children. Head Start is a leader in the early childhood field with a strong, clear, and comprehensive focus on all aspects of healthy development, including physical, cognitive, and social/emotional development, all of which are essential to children being ready for school.

Dear Lincoln Families,

Welcome to the 2021 – 2022 School year!

My name is Maidie Rosengarden and I am the new Principal at Lincoln School of Early Learning. I am so excited to serve the Coquille School District at this wonderful school. We will have time to get to know each other in early September!

We have mailed out your registration packet for this year, please mail it back or drop it off.

During our first week of school we will welcome parents in our building to meet with teachers and with me. We will require masks when you enter, and we will provide one for you when you arrive if you need one. All staff will be masked at Lincoln.

You can find the school calendar on the website, and we will be posting any new information as quickly as possible, so take a look!

Enjoy the last few weeks of summer, and we will see you soon!

Thank you!

Maidie Rosengarden Ed.D.

Online registration is for Winter Lakes Schools only.  Registration for all other schools will be in paper form.
