What is Head Start?

Head Start began almost 50 years ago as an eight-week program designed to provide preschool children from low-income families the opportunity to be in a program that nurtured their emotional, social, health, nutritional, and psychological needs. By October of 1998, Head Start was expanded to provide full-day and full-year services. In 2009, the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act provided more than 64,000 opportunities for Early Head Start and Head Start programs, and today, Head Start serves children and families in urban and rural areas in every state in the U.S. as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. territories.
