Stay Informed (Updated Wednesday, November 2, 2022)

The health and safety of our children, families, and child care providers is our top priority. Based on the recommendations of public health offices we as an agency will be taking the following steps.

Please continue to use the external drop box, US Mail, or email for submitting paperwork.

CCRC Book & Toy Resource Libraries

All CCRC Book & Toy Resource Libraries are closed until further notice.

CCRC Head Start

CCRC’s Head Start Birth to Five program will be reopening 20 classrooms at nine existing HS centers in the San Fernando Valley starting Monday, April 19, 2021.

HS staff will be welcoming back around 200 families. Currently enrolled children entering Kindergarten in the Fall are the priority right now. We want to provide them with some classroom and in person socialization experiences before they ‘cross the bridge’ and continue their learning journey.

Virtual services will continue for all other enrolled families.

For further information, please email Anna Ovsepyan in Head Start.
