The Early Head Start program in Lucas County began in 2014 through the Lucas County Head Start Collaborative. The program allows the youngest of the County's at-risk children to receive services as early as birth and to prepare them for a transition into preschool and the traditional Head Start program at age 3.
Early Head Start provides support to pregnant women and families including health and developmental screenings, medical and dental services, parent education, and family goal-setting. We believe – and research supports -- that if quality, comprehensive services start early and continue through preschool, children will be better prepared for school and parents will be better prepared to guide their children’s everyday learning.
Open enrollment is available at the Family Council office every Thursday from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm. Our office is located at the BTC Building, 1946 North 13th Street, Suite 420, Toledo, Ohio 43604.
