In 1990, York County teamed with CDR to open First Steps, a full-day, year-round child care center for young children from low-income families. This EHS center is also supported by the United Way and CDR’s Fund for Children. Children enrolled at the Griffin-Yeates Center must live in York County. This center is operated at no charge to the families.
The center is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and follows the York County Public School’s emergency closing procedures.
The Griffin-Yeates Center also houses the York County Children and Family Services/Head Start offices and four Head Start classrooms. This proximity to other community resources in York County helps families whose children will be transitioning to Head Start.
