The Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) Head Start and Early Learning Division receives state and federal funds that support 15 agencies. LACOE uses those funds to provide quality early education programs, and family services for low-income children (birth to age five) and their families. We work closely with school districts and nonprofit agencies to serve thousands of children in Los Angeles County through Head Start, Early Head Start, and State Preschool programs.
When we contract with an agency, we do more than just provide funding and make sure they comply with program rules and regulations. We also train staff, provide ongoing help and support, and offer additional community resources to support the program. This way, we help our valued agencies deliver the best services to each child and family they serve. Unless otherwise noted, all agencies provide Early Head Start and Head Start services.
