Head Start is one of America’s best children-oriented programs. Aimed at improving the lives of children and their families, Head Start provides services including early childhood education, health, nutrition, and much more. Head Start programs are designed to promote the emotional and physical health of children, foster strong cognitive skills, and improve family relationships.

What Does Head Start Do?

Head Start programs focus on pre-kindergarten children from low-income families. More than 32 million children have been helped by Head Start since its founding in 1965, positively impacting families across the country. The premise of Head Start is that every child, regardless of their circumstances, has the opportunity to reach their full potential as a person.

  • Early learning that readies children for kindergarten by fostering social and emotional skills, as well as language, literacy, and concept development
  • Children receive health and development screenings, nutritious meals, oral health and mental health support
  • Encourage physical activity through in-person and digital programs that get small children active
  • Supporting parents and families in the pursuit of their own goals with the aim of achieving things such as housing stability, continued education, and financial security
  • Programs support and strengthen parent-child relationships
  • Encourage families and teachers to participate in activities that aid in the development of their children, such as reading aloud
  • Exercises and activities designed to encourage critical thinking and improvement of areas such as math, science, and art
  • Initiatives that encourage community involvement and volunteer work to improve the setting in which the area children reside
