About Capital Area Head Start
Children learn something new every day! Their early years are full of growth and development. Capital Area Head Start (CAHS) gives children a head start in life, empowers parents, and strengthens families.
A program of Keystone Human Services, CAHS has been providing services for children and families in Dauphin, Cumberland, and Perry Counties in Pennsylvania since 1988.

Our Early Head Start program serves children ages birth to three and women who are pregnant.
Our goal is to prepare children and families for success in school and life. Parents are a child’s first and foremost teachers, and we encourage parents to take an active role in their child’s learning and development.
Our programs are designed to increase children’s literacy, cognitive development, and social-emotional development, as well as support children’s health and well-being. Every child receives comprehensive services, including educational, medical, dental, nutritional, and family social services.
