Pictured is Life Church in West Monroe where North Shore Head Start is now located.

The Cleveland Head Start has served families in this area for the last 20 years at St. Mary’s Church in Cleveland.

The church closed this past year and the Head Start program has secured another location to provide comprehensive services to residents in the Central Square School District.

The Head Start Center, which will now be known as North Shore Head Start, is located at 2363 County Route 49 in West Monroe at the Life Church.

Currently, renovations are being made in preparation for the upcoming 2016-17 school year.

Families interested in applying for the program can still contact the center by calling 315-675-3398 or 315-598-4711.

Applications are accepted throughout the year.

Applicants will need to provide proof of 2015 income and documentation verifying the child’s age (birth certificate and/or Medicaid card).

Head Start has been providing services across the nation for more than 50 years; making it the longest running Pre-K program in the nation.

Oswego County Opportunities is celebrating 50 years of service to the Oswego County community in 2016.
