History of this Location

The Wayland Head Start Center opened in its current location in August of 1999.  This location was built for Head Start by Kahoka business man Neil McKee.  This center was originally set up as a partnership with the Clark County Public Schools to operate an early childhood center.  That partnership lasted for 3 years.  At that point the Public School moved that classroom to the school.  Head Start continues to provide services to 17 children and their families.  The center operates a single session from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
