LBUSD Head Start and Early Head Start provides free part-day and full-day high-quality center-based care and education for children birth to five.  Additionally, home-based services are provided for pregnant women and families with children birth to three.  We embrace the provision of services through a multi-generational approach that builds on the premise that parents are their children’s first and most important teacher.  The comprehensive services provided include: family engagement, leadership and advocacy training; child growth development- school readiness, health, nutrition, mental health and early intervention services.  Priority is given to families who meet income eligibility guidelines, have foster children, are experiencing homelessness or inadequate housing, have a child with a disability or are facing other circumstances that warrant the need for early childhood care and education services. There are 23 locations across the cities of Long Beach and Signal Hill.  The centers are located on Long Beach Unified School District schools as well as five other community locations. The program provides families assistance in the process of potty training, thus, children do not need to be potty trained.
