CAA Postpones Start Date for Head Start 2019 Program


Four Head Start locations to open mid-September

CINCINNATI, OH (August 14, 2019) – The Community Action Agency’s Head Start program will be postponing the start date for the first day of school to mid-September for four locations. The anticipated start date of August 21 has been pushed back due to the delay in the licensing of three sites that were obtained earlier this year from Cincinnati Union Bethel and an additional new location. CAA staff is working diligently to expedite the licensing so that our children return to a great learning environment as quickly as possible.

Families of children enrolled at the Millvale, Camp Washington, Winton, and Discovering Minds Learning Center were notified of the delay. We encourage parents to attend one of the Parent Orientations on Monday, August 19 or on Tuesday, August 20, at either 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. Parents will have the opportunity to meet their child’s teacher, ask questions and tour the facilities. Families can also stay updated through the Head Start phone app, CHCCAAHS, for information on enrollment, facility updates and engagement opportunities.  The Theodore Berry Head Start located on Court Street, the Life Learning Center located on Langdon Farm Rd. will start, as planned on August 21, and there are still openings for enrollment at both locations.

We apologize for any inconvenience that the delay has caused for our families, but we want to make every effort to make sure our children are in Step Up To Quality facilities that exceed expectations. We look forward to providing the highest-quality education for the 2019/20 school year.

For more information, please contact Renee Daniel, Assistant Director Head Start at RDaniel@cincy-caa.org or 513-569-4510 or visit CincinnatiHeadStart.org for updates.
