By Making Friends and Building a Healthy Community

ATCAA Head Start/State Preschool and Early Head Start offers child enrichment, education, health, nutritional and developmental services as well as parent education and involvement opportunities. ATCAA offers Head Start preschool and State Preschool programs to prepare children for kindergarten, and Early Head Start for pregnant women and children aged birth to three.

Children may be enrolled at a Center or in a Home–Based Program. Approximately 300 families are served through these programs.

We offer many opportunities for parents to become involved in our program. The Policy Council  and the ATCAA Board of Directors work closely in a joint governance model to assure the Early/Head Start Program is serving the children in our communities in the best possible ways. We collaborate with other agencies such as First Five Commissions; Child Abuse Prevention Councils; Nutrition Fitness Council; Parent Advisory Groups;  and many others to bring services to families. Funding is provided by the Federal Government and California Department of Education as well as fundraisers, grants, and donations from local organizations, businesses, and foundations.
