Head Start & Early Head Start

  • Image of Metropolitan Family Services of DuPage's logo Through its Early Childhood Education Services program Metropolitan Family Services of DuPage partners with District 2 to offer Head Start and Early Head Start classes at the Bensenville Early Learning Center located at Tioga School. These classes focus on meeting the individual needs of children and assisting families in obtaining skills and acquiring knowledge of resources to meet their needs. These classes are voluntary social services programs funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and eligibility for participation is determined by age and income. Children with special needs are welcome.
