  • PLC operates the Early Head Start and Head Start programs in Portage County.

    Early Head Start is a year-round child development program for pregnant women, infants and toddlers. The priniciple foundation of this program is designed to promote the development of infants and toddlers and to enable parents to fulfill their roles as parents and move toward self-sufficiency through a relationship-centered approach to services. Twenty-four toddlers are served in the center-based program at Happy Day School. The adult-child ratio is 1:4. Sixty infants, toddlers and expectant mothers are served in the home-based program option.

    Head Start is a comprehensive child development program, which serves children three, four, and five years of age and their families. It is child-centered and has the overall goals of enhancing social competence and school readiness of young children in low-income families. The emphasis of Head Start is on the physical, mental, social, and emotional well being of children. PLC serves 290 Portage County children in the Head Start Program.
