Kankakee Community College

KANKAKEE — Beginning July 1, Kankakee Community College will no longer be a Head Start location.

“We have enjoyed partnering with this organization,” said Dr. Jose da Silva, KCC vice president for student affairs.

KCC students and faculty who qualified for the service for their children will have the option to attend another Head Start location in Kankakee County, according to a news release.

Child Care Resource and Referral funds assist qualified families for childcare.

The state of Illinois also has emergency funding support that students in need of childcare assistance can request.

Head Start at KCC offered a preschool program for children ages 3 to 5 beginning in August 2016.
