Head Start programs prepare America’s most vulnerable young children to succeed in school and in life beyond school. To achieve this, Head Start programs deliver services to children and families in core areas of early learning, health, and family well-being while engaging parents as partners every step of the way.
Many children and parents receive Early Head Start and Head Start services right in their own home! Home visitors come once a week and work with parents and their children.
The Migrant and Seasonal Head Start Collaboration Office (MSHSCO) promotes high quality direct service delivery through collaboration, coordination, and alignment of high quality services for all MSHS grantees and delegate agencies. The MSHSCO serves a vital role in facilitating opportunities for and fostering new partnerships to build a sustainable, comprehensive early learning system for MSHS children, families, and communities.
The National American Indian and Alaska Native Head Start Collaboration Office (NAIANHSCO) was created under Public Law 110‐134, "Improving Head Start for School Readiness Act of 2007.”
Head Start Collaboration Offices (HSCOs) facilitate partnerships between Head Start agencies and other state entities that provide services to benefit low-income children and their families.
The purpose of the National American Indian/Alaska Native Head Start Collaboration Office (NAIANHSCO) is to create statewide partnerships and foster working coalitions among all groups that support the AI/AN Head Start grantee population. As directed by the “Improving Head Start for School Readiness Act of 2007” (Public Law 110-134), this office has facilitated the improvement and expansion of services to low-income children in Head Start, as well as built linkages between local, state, regional, and national early childhood initiatives and policies. This allows us to facilitate more coordinated approaches to planning and service delivery for AI/AN Head Start communities.
The National American Indian Alaska Native Head Start Collaboration Office, created under Public Law 110-134 ("Improving Head Start for School Readiness Act of 2007"), is directed “to facilitate collaboration among Head Start agencies (including Early Head Start agencies) and
entities that carry out activities designed to benefit low-income children from birth to school entry, and their families.”
