Portage Learning Centers’ Ravenna location recently held a car show. Head Start children made cars at home with family members, using everyday objects.

Fathers, grandpas, uncles and other important male role models were encouraged to participate in the construction of the cars. Male role model information was offered to the families as well as other community information.

Portage Learning Centers operates early childhood education programs, including Head Start and Early Head Start, in Portage County. Head Start and Early Head Start are free, comprehensive, early learning programs for children birth to age 5, and pregnant women. Income guidelines exist.
