A Logan County Head Start program is getting nearly $782,000 in federal funding to continue preparing low-income children for school from a young age.
The program in Logan County serves 235 children in 25 collaborative classrooms. It began in May 1965, making it one of the oldest such programs in the nation.
The national Head Start program provides education activities, as well as other services such as social, nutritional, health and mental health, and transportation for children and their families.
