Thank you for visiting the Lafayette Parish Early Childhood Community Network Application System!
Act 3 (2012) called for the establishment of the Louisiana Early Childhood Care and Education Network to unify the state’s early childhood education programs. As directed by Act 3, Lafayette Parish has worked together to create a unified system of high quality, publicly-funded options to families to ensure more children enter school kindergarten ready. This network is comprised of a local early childhood community network that includes every publicly-funded Pre-K, Child Care, and Head Start program within the parish.
Early Childhood Community Networks improve family access to high-quality early learning experiences for children and increase support for programs. By empowering families with choice and raising the bar for all early childhood programs, Louisiana seeks to have every child prepared to enter and succeed in kindergarten.
We hope that these pages will assist you in better understanding some of the choices available to you and your student.
