School Readiness FAQs – Head Start

The purpose of these Head Start and Early Head Start School Readiness Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) is to help programs establish appropriate school readiness goals for children birth to five and aggregate data on children’s progress. The answers are founded in the relationships of children, families, and staff, as well as principles of how babies, toddlers, and preschoolers learn. The Head Start Program Performance Standards, especially language regarding school readiness from §1307, provide context for these responses.
