Early Head Start Research and Evaluation

1995-2002

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Administration on Children, Youth and Families

The program promotes learning and the parenting that supports it within the first three years of life. Participating children performed significantly better in cognitive, language, and social-emotional development than their peers who did not participate.

The Early Head Start program extends the Head Start concept to low-income pregnant women and families with infants and toddlers. Our staff worked with a consortium of local researchers and program directors to conduct a comprehensive implementation study and a random assignment impact study in 17 sites.
