Posted: July 1, 2014 - 11:59am

Chappell Schools Inc. will open a Head Start Center at 3851 Emerson St., Suite 3, beginning Aug. 18.

The center will serve up to 80 children. Chappell has provided child care in Jacksonville for about 55 years. It is partnering with Lutheran Services Florida (LSF) to operate the Emerson Street center.

LSF received an $18 million federal grant earlier this year to run Duval County’s Head Start and Early Head Start programs, which provide early childhood services to poor families with children age 5 and younger.

Chappell is accepting applications for its Head Start and Early Head Start programs. For more information or an application call (904) 572-5560.
