Early Head Start/ Child Care Partnership

In an effort to provide the best possible child care for infants and toddlers in Camden City, Center for Family Services, Partners in Parenting, Mi Casita, and Respond, Inc. have joined together to form the Early Head Start – Child Care Partnership (EHS-CCP). The EHS-CCP operates year-round and provides low-income families with access to high quality, full day child care, including family child care.

A total of 96 slots are available to families throughout Camden City. Along with our partners, Center For Family Services implements a curriculum to ensure infants, toddlers and families have the tools to develop and successfully transition into Head Start preschool.

Please note that EHS-CCP is different from Early Head Start. EHS-CCP is not direct care but rather a collaboration between Center For Family Services Head Start program and local child care centers to enhance their existing program.

For more information on the EHS-CCP, please view the following Office of Head Start PowerPoint.
