Head Start Preschool
Head Start promotes school readiness for children ages three to five in low-income families by offering educational, nutritional, health, social, and other services. Head Start programs promote school readiness by enhancing the social and cognitive development of children through the provision of educational, health, nutritional, social, and other services to enrolled children and families.
Early Head Start
Early Head Start (EHS) provides support to low-income infants, toddlers, pregnant women, and their families. EHS programs enhance children’s physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development; assist pregnant women to access comprehensive prenatal and postpartum care; support parents’ efforts to fulfill their parental roles; and help parents move toward self-sufficiency. Together, Head Start and Early Head Start have served tens of millions of children and their families.
Our Head Start program actively engages parents in their children’s learning and helps them in making progress toward their educational, literacy, and employment goals. We place significant emphasis on the involvement of parents in the administration of our program.
