About Us


Child Development Council of Franklin County, Inc. (CDCFC) is a nonprofit organization funded by the U.S. Office of Head Start. Since 1985, CDCFC has provided comprehensive early education and development services to income-eligible Head Start preschool children, ages 3-5, and their families. An Early Head Start program was added in spring 2007, to serve pregnant women and children ages 0-3.

We prepare children for success in kindergarten and beyond, and provide families with tools for overall success. Our programs are FREE for those who qualify under federal poverty guidelines; for others, Child Care Subsidy (formerly Title XX) or private pay options are also available. Currently, CDCFC provides services to more than 2,500 low-income children and their families at over 60 locations throughout Franklin County. Over theĀ  years, we have enriched the lives of countless children and families.
