Education Development Center Inc., a Newton nonprofit organization that manages education projects, said it has been awarded $10.8 million from the Office of Head Start at the US Department of Health and Human Services.

The federal award means preschool teachers in four New England states will have a new resource with the opening of service centers staffed by early childhood education specialists and managed by Education Development Center, the organization said.

The award includes about $3.6 million for Massachusetts, Education Development Center said.
