YSU partners with Alta Head Start to offer all-day preschool

Posted:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

College students won't be the only ones heading to class at Youngstown State.  The university recently partnered with Alta to launch a full-day head start program.  The new YSU Learning Center Model Classroom will preschool programming to kids in Mahoning County, as well as hands on experience to YSU students.

"So, if they want to do a dental cleaning or if they want to do a vision check or hearing screening and they are learning how to do that, boom, they can come right here and do it.  It is some of our performance standards we need to meet anyway and that is a unique part of this collaboration," said Joe Shorokey with Alta.

Head start students will receive health, nutrition, mental health and social services.
