Early Head Start programs were created in 1994 to provide intensive, comprehensive child development, and family support services for infants, toddlers, and pregnant women living in poverty. Early Head Start Programs are designed to nurture healthy parent-child attachment, promote school readiness, and foster positive child and family outcomes.
In a home-based program, each family is assigned a visitor who conducts 90-minute visits 46 times per year. Home Visiting has proven effective to support:
Annually, Early Head Start programs help more than 360,000 children from birth to 3 years old and pregnant women. Of this population, 36% received home-based services. Here in Region 9 this represents more than 17,000 children up to age 3 and pregnant women.
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.
