Head Start is a federal program that promotes the school readiness of children ages birth to 5, from low-income famiies by enhancing their cognitive, social and emotional development.
Head Start programs provide a learning environment that supports children's growth in:
Head Start provides comprehensive services to enrolled children and their families, which include health, nutrition, social services and other services determined to be necessary by family needs assessments, in addition to education and cognitive development services. Head Start services are designed to be responsive to each child and family's ethnic, cultural and linguistic heritage.
A critical part of Head Start's role is focused on nutrition. We provide our children with two-thirds of their daily nutritional needs, which is important not only for their health and well-being but for their intellectual and social development. Many children living in poverty are facing malnourishment, hunger, or can be overweight and/or obese. Head Start offers nutritious, ethnically diverse and child-friendly food through a state-of-the-art food service program.
Head Start volunteers play a crucial and active role in children's health and welfare by offering their time and professional services to help ensure each child receives the education, treatment, and support that will lead them to a healthy and fulfilling life.
