Head Start (HS) and Early Head Start (EHS), serving two generations, supports the mental, social and emotional
competence of children from birth to age five. In addition to education, HS/EHS provides children and their families with health, nutrition, and social-emotional education. Programs are responsive to each child and family’s ethnic, cultural and linguistic heritage, and focus on whole-child development in the context of the family and
community. HS/EHS provides early education within a comprehensive service framework that is committed to the engagement of families in the development of their children. HS/EHS recognizes parents as the
child’s first and most important teacher and as leaders in program governance.
