Description: ATCAA Head Start/State Preschool and Early Head Start offers child enrichment, education, health, nutritional and developmental services as well as parent education and involvement opportunities.
In Tuolumne County, ATCAA offers half day Head Start preschool and State Preschool programs to prepare children for kindergarten, and full day childcare at low or no cost for parents who are working, going to school, seeking employment, or have a referral from Child Welfare. Preschool children may be enrolled at the Head Start Center Based sites or in a Home-Based Program. In Amador County, we offer a full day program at our Jackson site and a morning and afternoon program in Ione. About 300 children are served each year in both counties.
We offer many opportunities for parents to become involved in our program. The Policy Council and the ATCAA Board of Directors work closely in a joint governance model to assure the Early/Head Start Program is serving the children in our communities in the best possible ways. We collaborate with other agencies such as First Five Commissions; Child Abuse Prevention Councils; Nutrition Fitness Council; Parent Advisory Groups; and many others to bring services to families. Funding is provided by the Federal Government and California Department of Education as well as fundraisers, grants, and donations from local organizations, businesses, and foundations.
In 2010 we opened 3 Early Head Start Centers for children aged 6 weeks to 3 years old. We also started a home based program for families with children and pregnant women. In 2014, in collaboration with Columbia College Child Development Center, we opened a Toddler Classroom for 8 children.
Where possible, ChildcareCenter provides inspection reports as a service to families. This information is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed. We encourage families to contact the daycare provider directly with any questions or concerns, as the provider may have already addressed some or all issues. Reports can also be verified with your local daycare licensing office.
