Head Start Logo Guidelines

The Office of Head Start (OHS) permits Head Start grantees and delegate agencies to use the Head Start logo in their local communities for recruitment and communications with families. This logo, two stacked blocks with red strips and a white arrow, represents both Head Start and Early Head Start programs. 

Use of Head Start logo by Head Start programs does not require prior approval. Authorized users must follow approved rules of style and format. Moreover, they cannot use this logo in any manner that might imply to the public an endorsement of an organization or any of its product offerings by OHS or the federal government.
