Semcac Head Start announces new services in Fillmore County

FILLMORE COUNTY, Minn. - Semcac Head Start is excited to announce a new service in Fillmore County. The program will offer a home-based option to reach families expecting a baby and/or with children who are ages birth-three years. A trained educator comes to the family’s home, weekly, to work with children and parents. Then, every two weeks, a socialization event is offered at the local Head Start Center to provide parents and children time for connecting with others. Services will begin in September 2014, at no-cost to families.

The new option is consistent with Semcac Head Start’s responsive and flexible programming. Being a rural county, the home-based option brings services directly to each home. The home-based option is in addition to our pre-school centers in Preston and LeRoy. Both options are high quality, focused on the entire well-being of children towards school readiness.

For more information, or for an application for Head Start, visit the Semcac Contact Center in Preston or call 507/765-2761. Our focus is to serve families with limited income based on federal guidelines. All interested families, including those with special needs, are encouraged to apply. Staff will work with each family to determine eligibility.

Semcac, a nonprofit community action agency, receives federal and state funding to administer Head Start in Dodge, Fillmore, Houston, Mower, Steele and Winona Counties. In 2013 – 2014, Semcac Head Start served 350 children who were birth to 5 years old. We provide education and comprehensive services to participating families at no cost.
