Early Childhood Development

The Most Critical Years.

CPLC's Early Childhood Development (ECD) programs are committed to giving every child, regardless of circumstances at birth, an opportunity to succeed in school and life.

A child’s brain develops more during the first five years than at any other time in life. Research indicates that a child’s experiences during these formative years have a lasting impact on their ability to learn and succeed. CPLC’s ECD Head Start programs provide comprehensive, developmentally appropriate early childhood education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and their families in safe, nurturing and supportive environments which successfully address each child’s total learning experience.
