Head Start of York County






As a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic, Community Progress Council’s Head Start and Early Head Start programs will be offered virtually until the end of 2020.


Over the course of the next four months, teachers will be working with children remotely to ensure that they are making progress and taking the necessary steps to prepare for kindergarten. In addition, CPC’s team of family engagement specialists will continue to work with families to provide resources and help them navigate financial challenges as they arise.


In order to best serve children and families in this new environment, we will be starting our classes only with children and families who were previously enrolled in the last school year. We hope to add more families into our program later in the fall.


If you have reached out to CPC about enrolling your child this fall, we will keep your family on our waiting list and will contact you as soon as we are able.


If you have any questions about enrollment, please contact us at ersea@yorkcpc.org or (717) 846-4600.



Como resultado de la pandemia Covid-19, los programas Head Start y Early Head Start de Community Progress Council se ofrecerán virtualmente hasta el fin de año 2020.


El equipo de educadores de CPC consideró que un formato de aprendizaje virtual proporcionaría un ambiente seguro para nuestros jóvenes estudiantes, sus familias y nuestro personal.


En el transcurso de los próximos cuatro meses, los maestros trabajarán con los niños de forma remota para asegurarse de que estén progresando y tomando las medidas necesarias para prepararse para la escuela. Además, el equipo de especialistas familiares de CPC continuarán trabajando con las familias para proporcionar recursos necesarios.


Con la meta de mejor servir a los niños y las familias en este nuevo ambiente, comenzaremos nuestras clases solo con los niños y las familias que se inscribieron previamente en el último año escolar. Esperamos a matricular más familias a nuestro programa más adelante en el otoño.


Si se comunicó con CPC para inscribir a su hijo este otoño, mantendremos a su familia en nuestra lista de espera y nos comunicaremos con usted tan pronto como podamos.


Si tiene alguna pregunta sobre matriculación, comuníquese con nosotros a ersea@yorkcpc.org o al (717) 846-4600.
