As the Head Start provider for Lancaster County, we are committed to providing high-quality learning experiences for infants through Pre-K, ensuring that every child receives the best possible start in life.
Thrive to 5 is a birth-5 aligned program that provides high-quality learning experiences for infants through Pre-K.
Our approach goes beyond traditional early childhood education. We embrace a two-generational model that focuses on supporting both caregivers and children in breaking free from the cycle of poverty. Our program provides children early childhood education, family support services, nutritious meals, and health screenings. We emphasize language, math, science, art, physical activity, and social skills to prepare children for school success.
Special services are available to ensure that all children can fully participate in the program. Click here to learn more about Thrive to Five Services.
