Supporting quality education programs including Early Head Start and Head Start throughout Portage County.
Each year, over 400 Portage County children from low income families are served by programs sponsored by Portage Learning Centers. We need your help to continue these important services for the children most at risk in our community.
Portage Learning Centers provides quality child development programs including Early Head Start and Head Start. Early Head Start provides services to expectant mothers, infants and toddlers to enable parents to more effectively fulfill their roles as parents and provide intervention and child development support for children. Head Start prepares children ages 3-5 academically, socially and emotionally for their future educational success.
Please check back before the race for any updates or news.
