The purpose of Head Start and ECEAP is to promote their school readiness by enhancing their cognitive, social, and emotional development. The high quality learning environment provided by Head Start and ECEAP supports children’s growth in language and literacy; cognition and general knowledge; physical development and health; social and emotional learning; and approaches to learning.
