LAWRENCE - The Greater Lawrence Community Action Council, Inc. is accepting Head Start students for the 2018-19 school year. The program serves children ages 15 months – 5 years old from Lawrence, Methuen, Andover and North Andover.
Head Start is one of three preschool options offered by the GLCAC that give parents affordable childcare so they can work or complete their education. GLCAC’s preschool programs provide quality education with nurturing teachers, nutritious meals and snacks, health checks, family services, and creative arts.
“We know early education is critically important to children and families, especially those in lower income brackets. Our programs are affordable and give parents a safe place for their children to start learning while they go to work or school. Without our programs, these parents could not afford childcare and so would have to stay at home without the opportunity to support their family,” said Evelyn Friedman, Executive Director of the GLCAC.
Head Start has five area locations: 305 Essex St., 136 Water St., 62 Park St. and 246 Andover St., all in Lawrence, and 24 Gill Ave. in Methuen. School bus transportation is available for most of the Greater Lawrence service area.
