About Us

Community Colleges of Spokane (CCS) operates more than 30 Head Start/ECEAP/Early Head Start centers in Spokane County, providing care and support for more than 1,600 children and their families. We began providing this service in 1973 and have been growing and adapting to meet community needs ever since.

We offer safe and secure environments that nurture child growth and development, and provide learning opportunities for children to enhance their skills and abilities for school success.

We are dedicated to working with low-income families so they can find support and success in getting their children off to a great beginning. Our parents and families are involved in developing the policies and goals of each center and are encouraged to be engaged.

We also operate centers on the campus of Spokane Falls Community College and Spokane Community College to serve eligible students while they attend college.
