Early Head Start Head Start Child Care

ACHR's wraparound program serves children ages 0-12 at Darden Center in Opelika and Marian Wright Edelman Center in rural Russell County.  Wrap-around care is offered at Darden and Edelman at low cost to parents who need childcare from 6:00 a.m-8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.-5:30 p.m., and/or during the summer and winter holiday period.  (Hours at Edelman are slightly different.)  Transportation can be provided to and from school for the school-aged children who attend schools in Opelika.

Key Benefits


HighScope Curriculum Approach allows and encourages each child to develop at his/her own pace.


Care provided in a central location for families with children of various ages so that the parent has only one pick up in the evening. 


During the summer months, the child care program at Darden Center for older children includes a wide variety of activities and events.

To learn more about the program or to enroll a child, contact our office at (334) 821-8336.
