SDE: Head Start

Head Start


Established in 1965, Head Start is a comprehensive child development program that serves children from birth to age 5 and their families. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, programs are child-focused and have the overall goal of increasing the school readiness of young children in low-income families. Connecticut Head Start programs are administered and operated by community action agencies, local education agencies and other nonprofit agencies.
