Do you know about NHSA’s 27 Million Windows project? All year long, NHSA will be gathering Head Start stories from Head Start alumni, parents and staff as a way of showing the country what Head Start has already accomplished and showing Congress how important it is to protect Head Start’s future. Check out stories from our state and add stories from your program at go.nhsa.org/27millionwindows.
"At the National Head Start Association, we believe it is no less than a national catastrophe that there is a massive and growing population of poor children, since it is clear that childhood poverty greatly impedes success. We know that the opportunity to succeed is a core American value and that Head Start provides an opportunity to succeed in school and in life, regardless of circumstances at birth. Head Start is a proven model of early childhood education that puts at-risk children on a trajectory for success."
