Head Start promotes school readiness for children, ages birth to five, in low-income families by offering educational, nutritional, health, social and other services. Head Start programs enhance the social and cognitive development of children and actively engage families in their children's learning so that children will be successful in kindergarten.
Head Start serves over a million children and their families each year in urban and rural areas in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Territories, including many American Indian and migrant children.
