New Head Start center slated to open in Norwood come December

The archdiocese is set to open its 14th Head Start center in the Bronx.

Head Start programs provide kids from low-income families with a pre-school education and health coverage. It's different from regular schools in that it deals with the family as a whole, helping them with housing and social issues.

The latest Head Start center, which is slated to open in December, has been named after Monsignor Patrick Boyle. The monsignor worked in the Norwood community for more than 30 years.

Families must meet certain requirements to take part in Head Start. The new center will serve about 60 underprivileged children in Norwood in the beginning, but the hope is that by the end of the year at least 200 kids will be able to take part.
