Stanislaus County Office of Education

Child & Family Services

The Stanislaus County Office of Education’s Child & Family Services (CFS) Division was established with the mission to provide the foundational resources and services children ages 0-5 need to become lifelong learners. CFS advances that goal every day through comprehensive early childhood education programs, as well as initiatives that empower parents and the education professionals with whom they work to maximize their ability to help the region’s children thrive in the classroom and community.

While predominantly serving Stanislaus County, CFS through its delegates, subcontractors and partners provides early childhood education programs to 7,276 children and 5,583 families across a total of eight California counties, including Contra Costa, Madera, Merced, Monterey, San Joaquin, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz. As a result, CFS makes a profound impact on individual lives and communities across Northern and Central California while delivering programs that are diverse, equitable and inclusive and incorporate recognized best practices to yield optimal academic and developmental outcomes.
