Fewer than 100 of the more than 1,400 community and technical colleges in the country have Head Start centers on campus. Meanwhile, Head Start programs are struggling to enroll children, with up to 180,000 childcare and early learning slots unfilled, according to a press release from the partners. Community colleges will allow Head Start centers to operate on campuses rent-free. The centers will provide college students who have children free childcare and educational programming, and students studying early childhood education can work at the centers, as well.
