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
