Early Head Start

Early Head Start grant aids babies and toddlers

CETE in conjunction with The Ohio State University’s Schoenbaum Family Center, College of Education and Human Ecology, and Wexner Medical Center will play a vital role in a new $16.5-million project to ensure children between 6 weeks and 3 years old in Columbus, Ohio, have a happy and healthy start in life. One of only two university-led collaborations in the country, the five-year Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership will focus on the education and welfare of the approximately 2,500 infants and 2,300 toddlers living in targeted neighborhoods where the child poverty rate is above the norm.
