CCAP offers programs for children and their parents that focus on early childhood education and development, mental and physical health, safety, nutrition, family engagement, and parenting.
Our Head Start programs promote the school readiness of children from birth to age 5. These programs provide a learning environment that supports the child’s growth in several areas, such as language, literacy, social and emotional development. Children are involved in engaging interactions and learn to get along with others. Our goal is to teach children to be ready to enter kindergarten with the skills that they need academically, socially, and emotionally.
Early Head Start provides services for pregnant women, as well as infants and toddlers. This program serves the family until the child reaches age 3 and is prepared to advance to another pre-k program. This particular program is designed to promote development support for infants, toddlers, and parents. In this program, teachers establish a partnership with both mothers and fathers to promote the child’s development. Health care services are a focus because good health is important to the child’s development. All children receive nutritious meals, development screenings, mental health support, and medical and oral care. Families are connected with health care services that are needed for the child’s physical and mental wellbeing.
