Latest School Readiness Resources

Head Start leads the early childhood field with a strong, clear, and comprehensive focus on healthy child development. This includes physical, cognitive, social and emotional development, all of which are essential to children getting ready for school. All agencies are required to establish school readiness goals, setting expectations of children's status and progress in a full range of development domains, as part of Head Start reform regulation (Head Start Program Performance Standard 45 CFR 1307).

The Office of Head Start (OHS) resources for improving school readiness can be sorted into four topics. Selecting a topic will generate a complete listing of relevant resources.
