SIDNEY — The Kids Learning Place is continuing enrollment for the Head Start preschool program for Fall of 2016.
Head Start is a comprehensive early childhood development program that serves low-income children from ages birth to five years and their families at no cost. It is a federally funded program operated by Council on Rural Services in Shelby County.
Children who attend Head Start programs are involved in school readiness that includes literacy, language, science, mathematics, and social-emotional development. They also receive medical and dental services, are served healthy meals and snacks, and enjoy playing safely indoors and outdoors.
How do you enroll your children for the fall?
Full day services (six hours) and part day classes (three and a half hours) will be available in the Sidney center, with an additional option of home based learning with staff visiting families (one and a half hours) each week and periodic group socialization.
Call today for information about the no cost services to children that are income eligible, in foster care or homeless. The program also allocates 10 percent of the slots for children with diagnosed special needs. To secure your child’s spot call 937-492-8787 or their toll free local number at 1-866-627-4557.
