Celina City Schools Will Receive Funding for Early Childhood Development Programs

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced $409,035 in new federal funds to support Head Start programs run by Celina City Schools. The funds were awarded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

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

Head Start is a federal program that provides children, until the age of five, from low-income families with programming to prepare them for school. These programs, including health, nutrition, and social services, are designed to ensure their healthy cognitive, social, and emotional development. More information on Head Start can be found here.
