Early Head Start

In 1994, the federal Early Head Start program was created to give all young children the same opportunities to succeed. Young children living in poverty are more likely to face challenges that negatively impact their development.

Research shows that Early Head Start improves a child’s success in school, leads to greater family self-sufficiency and encourages parents to support their child’s development. It’s time to expand Early Head Start to help ensure that all at-risk infants and toddlers enter school ready to learn and succeed.
