I have called the Malvern Arkansas CADC Head start to find out on what day the Head start starts school. They had given me another phone number to call and again that person didn’t know at all and proceeds to give me the phone number that I had already called in the first place. How do you work at the school, but don’t know on what day the Head start starts school?
