Oklahoma: Early Head Start Initiative
Learn how Oklahoma builds on Early Head Start by providing resources to community-based child care providers to help them deliver services that meet selected EHS standards.
The program offers two models to participating programs, “Expansion” and “Enhancement.” Under both models, participating programs must provide services that meet state quality standards and a specific set of program requirements, which are based on selected federal Head Start Program Performance Standards. Programs participating in the “Expansion” model may use funds to serve additional children with services that meet the above standards. Programs participating in the “Enhancement” model may use funds to improve quality of services to meet the above standards and use the funds to extend the day or year for children currently receiving federally funded EHS services.
