NORWALK - Norwalk's anti-poverty agency NEON says it will be business as usual today for the kids enrolled in its Head Start program.

Officials say they will continue offering child care services even though the federal government took control of the program away from NEON last week and put a Colorado-based company in charge.

Federal officials expressed concerns about the way the program is run.

NEON says parents should drop off their kids at the usual locations today.

The Colorado agency that is taking over the Head Start program has not said when its operation will begin.
