Building the foundation of social and academic success for all of our youth.

head start

Our child care and Head Start programs provide a safe, developmentally appropriate environment for infant, toddler, preschool and school-age children. We strive to support children’s school readiness and desire to be life-long learners, with a focus around providing a stimulating early education and care experience that promotes each child’s social/emotional, physical and cognitive development.


Our child care and Head Start programs include center-based part-day & full-day options; family child care; before and after school care for school-age children; and services for pregnant women. Families interested in our child care or Head Start programs should click on the Apply Now button to complete an interest form. A program representative will contact you to discuss your family's options.


Our center-based programs are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
