CIEDC Logan County Head Start program announces new location           Send a link to a friend

[August 10, 2007]  Two of CIEDC's Logan County Head Start classrooms will be moving to a new location for the upcoming school year. The new location is 2018 N. Kickapoo St. in Lincoln, former site of His Precious Little Ones day care.

The new building was recently remodeled and is a perfect fit for the CIEDC Head Start program. In the new building, the Head Start program will be able to provide kindergarten preparation and services to more Logan County children and their families. The playground has been relocated from its current site on Wyatt Avenue to the new location.

CIEDC also operates a Head Start center in Centennial Court, which will remain at its current location.

"We are really excited about our new location," said Michelle Schulte, Head Start area supervisor. "Providing quality services to children and families is very important to us, and this new site will only enhance those opportunities. Our staff has set up the classrooms and (is) looking forward to a fresh start for the upcoming school year."

CIEDC Head Start serves over 70 Logan County children and their families.
