Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework Implementation Toolkit

The Head Start Program Performance Standards require grantees to implement program and teaching practices that are aligned with the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework (ELOF). This toolkit guides the alignment process and helps strengthen practices to promote children’s development in all ELOF domains. After completing the toolkit, Head Start leaders and staff will be able to plan and implement program and teaching practices that support children’s outcomes.

Before you begin, explore the Introduction to the ELOF Implementation Toolkit.

The toolkit includes four implementation guides:

Using the ELOF to Establish School Readiness Goals

Update school readiness goals to align with the ELOF and identify child assessment data to measure progress.

Using the ELOF to Inform Curriculum Planning and Implementation

Align your curriculum and teaching practices with the ELOF.

Using the ELOF to Inform Assessment

Support your program in reviewing how well an assessment instrument assesses children’s skills, behaviors, and knowledge in the ELOF domains.

Using the ELOF to Inform Professional Development

Find tools to plan professional development that enables staff to support children’s development and learning in the ELOF domains.
