2021-2022 Lease Agreement YMCA Head Start.pdf
Provide Background Details and Rationale: Designed specifically for children ages six weeks old through pre-kindergarten, Head Start provides child care and education, including dental and health services, to low-income families. YMCA Head Start services are available for families that meet income eligibility guidelines or have a child with a diagnosed disability. Eligible children receive education, nutrition and health services from YMCA Head Start programs which are federally funded. Parents are invited to become involved through group activities, volunteering and interaction with the YMCA Head Start staff.

With the oversight of the Young Men’s Christian Association of Greater Kansas City, the Head Start program currently leases two classrooms and office space at the Gerner Family Early Education Center to support the YMCA Park Hill Head Start. YMCA Head Start has similar arrangements in North Kansas City, Liberty, Excelsior Springs and several locations in Kansas City. The use of the facility necessitates a lease agreement between YMCA and the Park Hill School District.

The materials terms of the lease are as follows:

* A one-year lease agreement between Park Hill School District (as Landlord) and Young Men’s Christian Association of Greater Kansas City d/b/a YMCA Park Hill Head Start (as Tenant).
