Program Information

Early Head Start complies with all federal guidelines- Head Start Performance Standards, Texas Minimum Standards, Transmittal Notices, and local NTPCDI EHS policies providing children and families with Head Start services. 

The final report to Congress presents complete findings from our seven-year national evaluation of Early Head Start. The findings show that the program promotes learning and the parenting that supports it within the first three years of life. Participating children perform significantly better in cognitive, language, and social-emotional development than their peers who do not participate. The program also had important impacts on many aspects of parenting and the home environment, and supported parents' progress toward economic self-sufficiency.
