Health and Safety Screener

The Health and Safety Screener can help organizations identify where they need to make changes and build capacity to ensure children are healthy and safe in their care. Head Start grantees must complete a screening of the health and safety environment of each center and family child care home where services are provided within 45 calendar days of the start of the program or school year, or within 45 calendar days of the start of the five year project period when the five year project period begins during the program or school year.
