Children ages 3-5 attend a half-day (3.5 hour) or a full day (7 or 8 hour) program at a licensed center, four days per week, from September to May. Full day program hours vary by location. Some of the Semcac Head Start locations are partnerships with other organizations or schools.
There are also toddler classrooms for Early Head Start, located in Austin and Winona, which operate year round (8 hour long classes).
Sixteen Head Start classrooms are located in the counties of Dodge, Fillmore, Houston, Mower, Steele and Winona.
