NEWPORT — Northeast Kingdom Community Action (NEKCA) recently relocated its Newport Head Start & Early Head Start program to a newly enhanced facility at 76 Lakemont Drive. This move signifies NEKCA’s enduring commitment to delivering exceptional early childhood education and support services in the Newport area.
The new premises offer a spacious and inviting setting, thoughtfully designed to enrich the educational journey for children in the Head Start and Early Head Start programs. This initiative underscores NEKCA’s dedication to providing a nurturing environment conducive to the comprehensive development of children, including their academic, social, and emotional growth.
