Our School Offers CDC & Head Start Programs

Head Start and CDC Logos

Our CDC program believes that in an effective Early Learning and Education Program:

  1. Children learn best in an atmosphere that fosters self-esteem and confidence.
  2. Classrooms/centers are reflective of thoughtful observation and intentional planning.
  3. Developmentally and age appropriate child centered activities designed around language/vocabulary, skills and interest levels that integrate social-emotional, cognitive, physical abilities, healthy well-being, and home and school. 
  4. A partnership is established between our program, home and community.
  5. Each child’s culture and language is respected to enhance the child’s self-esteem.

LBUSD Head Start and Early Head Start provides free part-day and full-day high-quality center-based care and education for children birth to five.  Additionally, home-based services are provided for pregnant women and families with children birth to three.  We embrace the provision of services through a multi-generational approach that builds on the premise that parents are their children’s first and most important teacher.

The comprehensive services provided include: family engagement, leadership and advocacy training; child growth development- school readiness, health, nutrition, mental health and early intervention services.  Priority is given to families who meet income eligibility guidelines, have foster children, are experiencing homelessness or inadequate housing, have a child with a disability or are facing other circumstances that warrant the need for early childhood care and education services.
