Our new classroom for 2-year-old children is open at our St. Helen’s Head Start Center in Gifford. Unlike our Head Start program for children age 3-5, our “Early Bird” Program is 100% locally funded. We would like to thank our funders for investing in the early childhood education of these beautiful young children. Program funders are: United Way of Indian River County, John’s Island Community Service League, Grand Harbor Community Outreach, Hauser Family Foundation (Pat & Skip Hauser), The Educational Foundation of America, PNC Foundation, and Indian River County Childrens’ Services Advisory Committee (CSAC). We thank you! The children thank you! The families thank you!
