Open House at new Urbana Head Start facility happening today

URBANA, IL (March 9, 2017) The Champaign County Regional Planning Commission will host an open house at their new Head Start facility in Urbana, Illinois, on Thursday, March 16, 2017. The open house will run from 4pm to 7pm at the facility located at 1603 E. Mumford Drive in Urbana.

Housed in the former Happi House Learning Center, Head Start staff spent several weeks preparing the new location for its official opening to children and teachers on February 27. It provides year-round services to children from six-weeks-old to five years of age. “The importance of this new center cannot be overstated,” says Brandi Granse, director of Champaign County Head Start/Early Head Start. “Not only have we expanded educational hours from three-and-a-half to six, at no cost to families, there is also a 10-hour option available for families eligible for the Child Care Resource Service.”
