Early Learning

Head Start

Head Start is a national anti-poverty program for children from families living below the national poverty line. Much of the program is focused on providing preschool for 4-year-olds and support for their families. However, there has been a significant push in recent years to expand Head Start services to children under age 4 and their families. These services, which range from home visits to infant and toddler care, are known as Early Head Start.
