Details
The overall goal of Head Start is to bring about a greater degree of social competence in young children of low-income families. Social competence refers to the child's every day effectiveness in dealing with both his or her present environmental and later responsibilities in school and life. It takes into account the inter-relatedness of cognitive and intellectual development, physical health, mental health, and nutritional needs.
