CCCC Head Start program workers returned to work today, Monday, Oct 12th. Temperatures are being taken upon entry. Same protocols hold (stay home if you’re sick, etc.). The staff were going to try do meal delivery today for the Head Start children (that’s the older group, 3-4 year olds) and hopefully to the Early Head Start group within a week or so.
No children at the center until further notice.
Larretta Hall is the interim Director for the next 60-days. Thanks for the assistance!
Please call the center at 766-4070 to have your questions answered at this time.
Head Start is the child development and family support services program for pregnant women, young children from birth to age five, and their families. Based on a request from the Spirit Lake Tribal Council, CCCC became the Head Start grantee on January 1, 2014. The CCCC Head Start program does include Early Head Start and currently has 52 employees, serving 130 children plus 30 pregnant women through the home and center based program.
CCCC, in cooperation with the Office of Head Start and the Spirit Lake Tribe, designed and implemented a new facility that has over 40,000 square feet of space on a 35-acre campus, that opened in the fall of 2018. The facility has 19 classrooms built to Head Start and child-care facility codes and thus the program could easily handle over 200 children.
The program needs tribal community members to consider employment and the development of individualized education plans toward achieving a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education (ECE). Head Start family members are given priority for employment and CCCC does conduct drug testing for all employees. Check out the CCCC web site for contact information.
