Thrive to 5 is a birth-5 aligned program that provides high-quality learning experiences for infants through Pre-K.

Our services prioritize children and families experiencing vulnerable conditions through differentiated programming that support families towards economic prosperity. CAP provides home-based and center-based services with extended day options. Our services align with a 2 generational approach of supporting the caregiver and child with escaping 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

Participating Locations

Our extended day and private pay options align with our mission in supporting working families with wrap services (before & after care) at low costs.

All 4 of our Early Learning Centers provide extended daycare options for infants-pre-k. Outside of these locations, we do offer a shortened pre-k day throughout all 16 partnering school districts in Lancaster County.
