Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships

ICAA’s Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships (EHS-CCP) program provides services to families living in Burnett, Clark, Rusk, Sawyer, Taylor, and Washburn Counties. EHS-CCP is a collaboration between ICAA and local day care providers. The goal of providing EHS-CCP services at local day cares is to support high-quality child care providers, support child development in infants and toddlers, and prepare children for their transition to Head Start and/or preschool.
