Early Head Start and Child Care - Building Relationships

Marlene Midget, executive director for Northern Panhandle Head Start Inc., released in late January 2015 that NPHS was one of three recipients in West Virginia of the Early Head Start - Child Care Partnerships grants. This $1.48 million grant will offer NPHS the opportunity to enhance early care services with five well-established local child care organizations that provide a safe and nurturing environment for working families with young children.

This collaboration will support 72 children ages 6 weeks to 3 years old in four of the Northern Panhandle counties and offer our partners with resources and money to upgrade classrooms, facilities, increase teacher trainings and support added with early learning materials.

Newly formed partnerships include The Children's Academy and Little Bear Day Care both located in Weirton, WV (Hancock County), Noah's Ark Child Care and Learning Center located at Wheeling Park High School in Wheeling, WV (Ohio County), Glen Dale Child Development Center located in Glen Dale, WV and Marshall County Day Care Center located in Moundsville, WV (both centers located in Marshall County). 

Contact Jackie Bell, M.Ed., Early Head Start Manager with any questions.  She can be reached at 304.233.3290 or via email at jbell@npheadstart.org
