Head Start is a federally-funded, national
child and family development program which
provides comprehensive services for pregnant
women, children from birth to age five, and
their families. Services for children promote
school readiness, and include early education,
health, nutrition, mental health, and services for
children with special needs. Services for parents
promote family engagement, and include
parent leadership and social service supports.
As an Early Head Start Home Visitor, you

education and services to promote healthy
prenatal outcomes for pregnant women,
provide or support the care of infants and
toddlers so as to enhance their physical, social,
emotional, and cognitive development, support
parents in the care and nurturing of their infants
and toddlers, and help parents move toward
self-sufficiency and independent living, as

trajectory of children’s lives, including children’s
learning outcomes, living standards, and later
academic and professional success. If you
want to make a difference in the lives of young
children and their families, consider joining the
