Our programs are usually fully enrolled. We utilize the eligibility list to fill our enrollment needs.  Waitlist is prioritized by rank (income/family size ratio) and is not a first come, first serve basis. This is a mandate for state-funded programs such as ours. 

Families/children will be enrolled based on rank and the age group in which the slot is available. 

If you have questions about any of the process please contact our Family Services Coordinator at 925-689-5151. Or email at

Head Start and Early Head Start Partners

Concord Child Care Center became a partner for the Head Start Project in 2000. Since then, we have offered the same type of programs and services as all Head Start programs to expectant parents and families with toddlers and preschoolers through age 5 as part of Early Head Start and Head Start partnership. 

CCCCinc currently serves 24  toddlers and 33 preschoolers in partnership with Unity Council of Alameda.

  • The enrollment process for the full-day programs may also include (for many families) enrollment into the Head Start program.
  • Much of the required documents are the same; however, selected families will also meet with the Family Advocate to complete that portion of the process. 
  • HS/EHS families receive additional support and eligibility for available services provided by Unity Council. 

All families, whether enrolled in HS/EHS or not, are provided resources and support services as a part of Concord Child Care Center, Inc regular practice.
