New Head Start Classrooms Opening at the Esperanza Center in Moline
After being closed since before COVID the Esperanza Center in Moline will open its doors to up to 80 preschool children this fall. Head Start Director, Andrea Flannery is thrilled the center—located in the Floreciente neighborhood– will be filled with students. “The Floreciente community has always embraced Project NOW’s Head Start. We have a long and rich history partnering with this community to enhance lives. We want to be that support in the city of Moline for these underserved neighborhoods. We want to share in their progress, success, and growth in our shared community, and that starts with serving some of the youngest, and turning them into Head Start kids!”
Flannery says she is preparing to provide transportation for students enrolled at this site, which may allow Head Start to service more children in East Moline—also an area she says is underserved.
