Montgomery County Intermediate Unit Head Start and Montgomery County Intermediate Unit Pre-K Counts are FREE, federally-funded preschool programs for children from low-income families ages 3 to 5 in Montgomery County. These program offer no-cost educational, nutritional, and social services that help children prepare for success in school.
