Placer Community Action Council (PCAC), Early Head Start Program and Nevada Joint Union High School District share the belief that young children of teen parents benefit from participation in programs where instruction is based upon developmentally appropriate learning activities and individual ability while improving the parent’s academic achievement and parenting skills.  Family involvement and professional collaboration will enhance the learning program provided by this team of professionals committed to the goals of Early Childhood Education and Teen Parenting.

The Center Based program option is specifically designed for children prenatal to three years old. Children participate in a stimulating and challenging educational environment where they are supported and challenged by credentialed and trained educators.  
We believe that children are active learners and our balanced curriculum provides experiences for children in social-emotional development, physical development, language and literacy development, science, and the arts.
