Mississippi State University Extension is partnering with multiple school districts and learning facilities on the Coast to bring more head start programs to the area.
The program is designed to help youngsters transition from early care to kindergarten by getting used to the educational settings.
There is currently only one head start program in Harrison County at the Moore Community House and there are nearly 100 kids on the waiting list.
Parents that are interested there will be an information meeting tonight where you can learn all about the program. The meeting will be tonight from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the MSU Coastal Research and Extension Center on Popp’s Ferry Road in Biloxi.
