Central Kentucky Community Action believes in inspiring life-long learning. Through our Head Start and Early Head Start programs, we remain committed to delivering a comprehensive, high-quality education for children and families. Our programs promote children’s development through services that support early learning, health, and family well-being while engaging parents as partners every step of the way. Serving the communities of Marion, Washington, Larue, Meade, Hardin and Nelson counties, our programs are designed to help pre-school age children from low-income families become school ready, able to achieve high academic standards.

Our highly qualified teachers help us carry out our core mission every day. The talent and dedication of our teaching staff help us raise the bar and reach for the stars, literally. Each of our centers remain at the highest levels of standards as indicated by either a 4-Star or 5-Star rating in the STARS for KIDS NOW initiative.
Additionally, the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) has awarded accreditation to four of our centers. NAEYC-accredited early learning programs are meticulously measured for indicators of quality in the classroom and beyond. Accreditation ensures that programs are safe, well prepared, and intentional about ensuring children’s success.
