RESA 8 Head Start/Pre-K is accepting applications for children who are four years old before September 1 of the current year in Berkeley, Jefferson, and Morgan counties.  For applications, please call 304-267-3595 or click here to download a printable application.


Parents and guardians who apply prior to school year beginning will receive notices throughout the summer about orientation dates and documents still needed for your child's file.  For those applications received during the school year, parents and guardians will receive a phone call when/if vacancies occur throughout the year.  If you have questions, please contact Sarah Magaha at 304-267-3559 or Abigail Kerns at 304-267-3595 ext. 145.


We get many calls asking what materials children need to bring to class. We supply crayons, paper, etc.  The children like to have backpacks and they come in handy to take supplies and flyers to and from home, but they are not required.  We also like to have a change of clothes available.  Make sure that your child has comfortable, sturdy shoes.  Tennis shoes are recommended and sandals and open-toed shoes are not safe to wear on the playground.
