Parents are our most important partners, and our Family Engagement approach involves a commitment to work with parents to close the achievement gap and ensure that their children achieve their school readiness goals. Additionally, we…

  • partner with community agencies to ensure that our parents can be connected to supportive resources,
  • welcome parent volunteers at the centers,
  • offer opportunities for parents to participate in the classroom,
  • provide training and resources for parents to engage in fun and educational activities with their children, and,
  • rely on parents to govern and oversee operation of the program.

We are currently engaged in a transition period. During this period, we are working with the current provider and our partners to put all program components in place. This includes establishing and licensing centers, hiring and training staff, enrolling students, and setting up data and technology systems. Once this transition period is complete, PRIME TIME, Inc. will assume operation of the Lafayette/Iberia Early Head Start and Head Start program in January 2021.


During the transition period, returning Early Head Start and Head Start students will be prioritized for enrollment. All parents with an interest in our program are asked to share their contact information for follow-up using this form.


Safe and hygienic facilities in which our students and families can thrive are a top priority for PRIME TIME, Inc.  We are working to license centers that can meet health and safety standards and serve as optimal learning environments.

Program Start Date

We are eager to begin offering Early Head Start and Head Start services once the transition is complete.  The start date will be based on the time required to prepare and license centers.  We will offer parents updates on opening time frames as often as possible.
