What is Head Start?  

Head Start is a Federal program that promotes the school readiness of children from birth to age five from low income families by enhancing their cognitive, social and emotional development. Head Start Programs seek to help build relationships with families that support family well-being and to increase parent's skills, attitudes, and knowledge, which in turn could lead to positive gains in children's development.
