About Early Childhood Education

About CSC

Our Mission

Prepare young children and their families to succeed in learning and in life through innovative, comprehensive, leading-edge services.

Our Vision

CSC exemplifies excellence in early learning, providing inspiration and leadership that engages our communities to put children first.

Our Impact

  • 9,644 children received subsidy for childcare last year
  • 40,258 children served in 942 STAR sites
  • 16,639 teachers and directors attended professional development activities
  • 96.4% finished Head Start fully ready for kindergarten

Government sources shoulder the greatest portion of our work. But they cannot do it all.

  • We need your partnership to bridge the 20 percent gap between the cost of education and government grants.
  • We need your support to reach the other 5,000 young children in the Lehigh Valley who are eligible but not funded for quality early education.

Your donations make it possible to:

  • Purchase classroom materials and equipment
  • Keep staff up to date with best practices
  • Provide parent education
  • Expand arts, science, technology and math education
  • Ensure every child receives three books a year
  • Provide emergency assistance for diapers, formula, utilities and other family needs

Your assistance can make a bright future possible for these children who live in the poorest families in the Lehigh Valley, many of whom have annual incomes of only $13,000.
