South Coast Head Start expands services in Coquille and Bandon

Coos County, OR- Oregon Coast Community Action’s South Coast Head Start has been awarded extended duration funding to expand Head Start service hours in Coquille and Bandon. This funding will extend the school day for 38 children and families at both the Coquille and Bandon Head Start locations.

“Longer hours will increase children’s learning and developmental outcomes along with supporting working families,” said Child and Family Service Director, Wendi Baird.

This extended duration grant also includes $11,000 for one-time purchases to ensure staff and children have a dynamic and developmentally appropriate place to teach and learn.

“We are excited to be able to offer extended day services in Bandon and Coquille. The earlier and better we prepare our children, the better they perform in school later in life,” said ORCCA’s Executive Director, Mike Lehman.

Head Start and Early Head Start provides a comprehensive child development program for low-income children from birth to age five. The program supports parents as the first and most important teacher of their children.
