June 2024 Newsletter Article

Summer is here for our Head Start kiddos and staff. Early Head Start is in operation through July!


This academic year has been an exciting and challenging one! Our Bardstown Head Start facility at 820 Pennsylvania Avenue has been fully operational this year. However, starting in mid-June, we are completing major renovations to the facility which include new HVAC, flooring, and playground. Our hope is that all repairs and renovations are completed before staff return at the end of July.


While recruitment for new children and staff is a year-round activity, Central KY Head Start (CKYHS) has begun pushing hard for applications for new students and staff for the upcoming school year. We would love to hear from you if you have any kiddos or professionals in your world for whom Head Start would be a good fit. Please feel free to visit our website or find us on Facebook at Central KY Head Start.


Lastly, this summer, CKYHS applies for its new five-year grant. We are requesting some adjustments to our structure to serve more Early Head Start children and to create capacity to increase the number of children we can serve in the future. CKYHS is constantly evaluating how to best utilize our federal resources to maximize our impact. We do not have any official updates to share, it is our hope to have very exciting news in our next newsletter!

Thank you for your ongoing support of Central Kentucky Head Start!
