Child Care

ABC's Head Start and Early Head Start work with individuals and families by providing them with support and child care assistance. They offer an early educational and recreational opportunity, so that as a family they may continue their journey toward self-sufficiency. It is important to note that ABC's North Street CDC is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. This accreditation ensures that children, who may range from age six weeks to five years, have access to the best educational, nutritional, health, child care, and family programs that are available in the local community. School-age child care is available both after school and during vacations.
