Head Start Enrollment 90,012
The Golden State ranks as the fifth largest economy in the world. But with California’s population of 39.5 million, there are more than a half million at-risk children under age five. Of those, only 38% of three-and four-year old had access to Head Start. And only 4% of children under three had access to Early Head Start.
Most Head Start programs are in the California’s larger cities, but because the state has a large agricultural industry that attracts migrant workers, there are 10 migrant/season Head Start programs providing vital education, socialization and health services to more than 6,600 children.
I have been to management workshops, not leadership training. This has totally changed my perspective and encouraged me to propel forward in developing my skills.
I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of the Region 9 Head Start Association’s Legacy Scholarship. The scholarship helped me get one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a Head Start Director.
I took part in The disproportionate impact of COVID 19, and how to provide “real” support for black/brown children and families and I just want to say this was an amazing webinar. I hope we can look forward to further conversation on this topic.
Thank you so much for making events like this! I really enjoyed and learned so much teaching strategies to implement STEM in the classroom.
The HR Network was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants.
The Summer Camp training was powerful and inspiring! Each presenter was very engaging, it’s hard to even pick a favorite session!
The Leadership Challenge training was very relevant to my work as a Head Start leader! Great facilitation; stayed with the program yet allowed time for individual and small group reflections.
