Head Start was established in 1965 to promote school readiness and provide a comprehensive array of health, nutritional and social services to low-income children and families. Head Start is built upon the understanding that the development of young children is deeply influenced by the family, by their community, by their health, as well as the educational experiences to which they are exposed. The 1975 Head Start Program Performance Standards defined high quality services in early childhood education, parent involvement, social services, and health.
