Systemic, integrated, and comprehensive PFCE begins with positive, goal-oriented relationships. PFCE focuses first on the family and child outcomes that it is designed to achieve.

In line with the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework (ELOF), the overarching outcomes that virtually all programs strive for are that children are:

  • Safe
  • Healthy and well
  • Learning and developing
  • Engaged in positive relationships with family members, caregivers, and other children
  • Ready for school
  • Successful in school and life
