Welcome to the CESA #11 Head Start and Early Head Start website!
Serving children and families in Barron, Polk Chippewa, Dunn, St. Croix, Pierce and Pepin Counties in Northwest Wisconsin
CESA #11 is a federally funded comprehensive school readiness program for children from birth to 5 and their families.
What we do at CESA 11 Head Start has a positive impact on children, families and the communities in which we work. We are entrusted to educate our most precious resource: your children! It is an important responsibility and a great opportunity. More than 720 children and their families participate each year in a variety of school readiness and family engagement activities. This multigenerational approach helps ensure that the children in our care are ready for school, parents are ready to support their child’s learning, and schools are ready for children.
Our vision is to create relationships and build collaborative partnerships within our communities that support and empower the unique potential of each Head Start child, family and staff member. We fulfill our vision daily by providing high quality, comprehensive preschool services to children and families in seven counties.
Thank you for taking the time to view our website!
