Early Childhood Education

50 Years of Head Start Early Childhood Learning in Greater Cleveland

More than half a century ago, the Council for Economic Opportunities brought the Head Start program to Greater Cleveland. Since then, hundreds of thousands of young people received a jump start on their education, better preparing them for success in kindergarten and beyond. In fact, Head Start alumni live and work throughout our community. They are our doctors, teachers, civil servants, artists and professors. We will tell their stories in our Progress + Success: One Story at a Time series. Take a moment now to learn how you can get your little one on a road to a wonderful future.
