HEAD START AND EARLY HEAD START
The CAPSLO Head Start and Early Head Start programs provides high quality, no-cost child care, early childhood education, and preschool services to low-income families in San Luis Obispo and Northern San Diego Counties.
The program serves families with children from the birth through age five, with some additional services for pregnant women.
CAPSLO has been providing Head Start programs continuously since 1966.
The program offers a blend of center-based preschool, family child care, and home-based options to meet the early childhood education and/or child care needs of low income families.
Head Start and Early Head Start are more than just “day care” programs– these programs help children get ready to succeed in school and life by focusing on the child’s overall health and development, while helping parents increase their confidence through education and program involvement opportunities.
