In the early 70's, The Agricultural and Labor Program, Inc. made child care services available to the children of migrant and seasonal workers when no other service providers were available to meet the child care needs of these families. Since the late 70's, ALPI continues to operate as the Central Agency for Subsidized Child Care Services and has provided child care for as many as 4,500 children per year.

ALPI also serves as the Grantee Agency for Head Start Services in St. Lucie County. In 1978, ALPI received initial funding to serve 160 Head Start children. Today, the Head Start Program has grown to serve over 571 children. In 2000, ALPI's Early Head Start application was approved to serve 40 infants and pregnant mothers in St. Lucie County. Also in 2000, DHHS/ACF approved ALPI's grant application to serve an additional 119 children. Today, ALPI serves 731 children in it's Head Start/Early Head Start program.

All of ALPI directly operated Child Care and Head Start Centers are NAEYC accredited, state licensed and Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) certified. Special Awards and Recognition include the Gold Seal of Excellence from the Florida Department of Children and Families, as well as special recognition from United Way for the ALPI Head Start Program, which featured Head Start children in the local United Way Campaign video.
