HEAD START NEK-CAP, Inc.
Notice to parents. Head Start offers a Comprehensive School Readiness Program at NO COST to eligible families. Early Head Start (Prenatal - 3 years) and Head Start (3-5 years).
A note from Carl Bosch, a concerned parent/community member -
Because there are 23 student enrolled in the Pre-K in School District #377, that means there was 23 kid's in our district that possible qualified to go to Head Start. This number of student is not that unusual for District #377 each year. If we are able to get at least 4 kid's enrolled for head Start in the Effingham area, which also means they can pickup kid's in Lancaster, Huron and other parts of the county, NEK-CAP said they would send a bus to transport our children to Atchison Head Start for classes. I believe this is a real problem that we can overcome.
Every year NEK-CAP has said there is not enough kid's in this area to send a bus. This is their standard answer to everyone who enquirers out in the county. What I am asking is for every parent that has tried or does try to get their child in Head Start, please contact us at 913-833-2250 Carl or Evelyn Bosch so we can keep a running total of the applications just for accountability. We have a 3 year old that qualifies for Head start but we need transportation for him and we are trying to make it better for all.
P.S. If you know of any other parents that didn't receive this notification please pass it on.
