Schools in La Habra Trip to PBS SoCal
Education and overall mental wellness for our youth is very important to the community here in La Habra. The City has compiled extensive information in the below sections to assist you in finding the right fit for your child's needs; public, private and special education programs. 

In addition, as your child becomes a teenager and enters into high school, job education is extremely useful.  La Habra houses the Orange County Youth Center (OCYC)where individual success is a main focus.  The OCYC began approximately 42 years ago, when the City of La Habra began to operate workforce development programs for youth and adults under theManpower Development and Training Act , a United States federal law enacted in 1962.

We understand there is much more information out there, but hope that our gathered links will jump start you in the right direction!

The City of La Habra has an excellent Child Development Division that consists of five programs - Head Start, Early Head Start, State Preschool, School-Age, and Family Child Care Home Network, which are federally or state funded.  We provide quality child care and/or development services to children ages 6-weeks to 11 years old, including children with special needs. Eligibility requirements for each program vary. Please take time to review these Child Development Programs as you make the best choice for your child.
