California Head Start

Child Care/Child Support > California Head Start

 

Program Description:

Head Start is a national program administered by the Head Start Bureau within the Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Administration for Children and Families (ACF), and Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). Head Start provides comprehensive developmental services for low-income children from birth to entry into elementary school.

Head Start is currently funded at over $6.6 billion and serves more than 912,000 low-income children and families nationwide. The program is child-centered, family-focused, comprehensive, and community-based. Head Start services are designed to address developmental goals for children, employment and self-sufficiency goals for adults, and support for parents in their work and child-caring roles.

Head Start is a direct Federal-to-local program administered by over 1,500 locally based public or private organizations, called "grantees," across the country.
