Children, Youth & Families

Nurturing from the Start

Good beginnings and promising futures start in South County's child care programs and are enhanced with programs designed to give parents the skills needed to help their children succeed through all their formative years. Our goal is to impact positively on all facets of a child’s life: early childhood education and development, mental and physical health, safety, nutrition, family life and parenting.
