GREENE COUNTY — The Kids Learning Place is continuing enrollment for the Head Start preschool program for the upcoming fall season.

However, Kids Learning Place officials are urging parents to call before it is too late.

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.

Head Start is a comprehensive early childhood development program that serves low-income children from birth to five years old and their families at no cost. It is a federally funded program operated by Council on Rural Services in Greene County.

Full day services (six hours) will be available at locations in Fairborn and Greeneview Elementary School. Part day classes (three and a half hours) will be available in Xenia and Fairborn. Head Start also offers a home based learningoption, which covers the whole county and entails staff visiting families for an hour and a half each week, as well as periodic group socialization activities.

Call today for information about the no cost services to children that are income eligible, in foster care or homeless. The program allocates 10 percent of the slots for children with diagnosed special needs. To secure a child’s spot, call 937-878-4460 for Fairborn, 937-372-1446 for Xenia and Jamestown or toll free at 866-627-4557. Visit www.kidslearningplace.org for more location information.
