Message From The HS/EHS Director


The Head Start and Early Head Start program is committed to getting young children ready to enter kindergarten.  Parents are a child’s first and most important teacher. Working  together with parents, this goal can be accomplished.  The staff at Pee Dee CAP is passionate about early care and learning as it guides a child through each stage of growth development from ages birth to age five.  While children learn through play each teacher is intentionally teaching and individualizing with them.  Whether a child has special needs or not he or she is full of bright potential.  It is our goal to help each child blossom.

Pee Dee CAP Head Start and Early Head Start is honored parents have chosen this program  to work together.  We believe children thrive in a safe environment that encourages a child’s curiosity as they grow and learn.  We are challenged to provide a high-quality learning experience to enhance the well-being of young children by utilizing best-practices with a caring staff.
