For more than 40 years, The Children’s Aid Society has offered high quality early childhood services to New York City’s youngest children, particularly those most affected by poverty, through federal Head Start and Early Head Start funding, as well as state, city, and private dollars. In the mid-1990s, Children’s Aid connected its early childhood programs (ECPs) to the community school strategy at P.S. 5 and P.S. 8, creating a model that surrounds children with support services to enhance long-term success in school.
