Preventing Child Maltreatment

Child maltreatment can happen in any setting. Head Start programs need leadership, support for staff, and training to make sure children are safe from harm while in our care. Reporting suspected maltreatment can protect a child, and even save their life. In this vlog, Dr. Bergeron reminds programs that all Head Start staff are mandated reporters of child abuse and neglect. Revisit ACF-IM-HS-15-04 Mandated Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect to review the legal obligations.
