Whether you are a parent who is seeking information about child care and development programs in Shasta County, or a school district or child development provider who would like to know about professional development opportunities, we have the programs, services and information you are looking for.


ECS is funded by various sources of state, local, and federal funds to provide resource and referral services to families and the child care community; we provide part day preschool programs; we operate nutrition services (including Child and Adult Food and National School Lunch programs) among many more types of programs that we offer.

How one handles success or failure is determined by their early childhood.Harold Ramis
