How to Enroll-LA4, NSECD, Head Start, PEG & CCAP

Louisiana is making big changes to early care and education in the state! Schools and centers have a new rating system, and the Louisiana Department of Education's new School Finder site makes it easier than ever to find out important information about schools and centers in your area. Louisiana is also making it easier than ever for parents to apply for publicly funded early learning programs, including private centers, Head Start, LA4 (Pre-K in public schools) and NSECD (pre-k in private schools).

Each parish has different deadlines and processes, so we've put together some basic information about enrollment in each parish we serve:
