County Set To Renew Head Start Lease At Molino Community Center

December 6, 2023

Escambia County is set to renew a lease with the Community Action Program Committee for a portion of the Molino Community Center that is used for a Head Start program.

The non-profit will pay $5 in advance for a five-year term under a lease agreement to be considered by the Escambia County Commission at their next meeting on December 7.

Head Start and Early Head Start Programs provide comprehensive, developmental services for low-income pre-school children ages birth to five and support services for their families. The purpose of the Head Start programs is to promote school readiness by enhancing the social and cognitive development of children through the provision of health, educational, nutritional, social and other services. The cornerstone of the program is parent and community development.

The program has operated at the Molino Community Center since 2014. photo, click to enlarge.

    I absolutely love the teachers at this location. I’ve been with head start for 4 years and all but this year we have been at this location. Head start is just an amazing thing but makes it better when you love the staff.. we are now at the brigadier location for our last year and I encourage all parents/grandparents to look into it if they need because they are amazing.. I miss Mrs. Eccles Mrs.Dale and Mrs.Johnson but I still am able to see Mrs.Powell everyday!!

    Our granddaughter attends this school and I can say, without a doubt, this is a wonderful program. Mrs. Eccles is a genuine teacher with more care and love for her students than I have ever seen. Mrs. Powell, although no longer at this location, is also a wonderful teacher with the same care and concern for the well-being of her children. Thank you all for your services.
