Thrive to Five (formally Lancaster County Head Start and CAP Child Care) 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. We provide home-based and center-based services with extended day options. Our services align with a 2 generation approach of supporting the caregiver and child with escaping poverty.
The merging of 2 programs (Lancaster County Head Start and CAP Child Care) allows our Thrive to 5 program to meet families where they are and provide high-quality education for those meeting income requirements of 100% of the poverty guidelines through 300% with free services funded through federal and state grants (Head Start and Pre-K Counts).
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.
