Head Start is a comprehensive early education program for children from at-risk backgrounds from birth to age 5. From early math and reading skills to confidence and resilience, we help children build the abilities they need to be successful in school and life. Every year, Head Start provides essential services for more than one million children from birth to age five. We partner with countless parents, teachers, and community members to understand how we can support them and their communities. Together, we are creating meaningful, measurable change.
President Ronald Reagan proclaimed October was first Head Start Awareness Month. Ever since, October has been a month for our community to celebrate Head Start’s life changing impact.
