Butler County Educational Service Center Will Receive Funding for Early Childhood Development

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced $2,809,273 in new federal funds to support Head Start and Early Head Start programs run by Butler County Educational Service Center, an agency in Hamilton that provides educational programs for children and their families. The funds were awarded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

“This is excellent news for Butler County families and their children,” Brown said. “Head Start and Early Head Start ensure that children have the skills they need to succeed in elementary school and beyond.”

Head Start is a federal program that provides young children from low-income families with programming to prepare them for school. Early Head Start focuses on children ages birth to three. These programs, including health, nutrition, and social services, are designed to ensure their healthy cognitive, social, and emotional development.
