Head Start Program :
Head Start and Early Head Start programs promote school readiness for economically disadvantaged children by enhancing their
social and cognitive development through the provision of educational, health, nutritional, social and other services. Head Start
programs serve children ages 3-5 and their families. Early Head Start programs serve pregnant women and children birth to 3 and their
families. The federal Office of Head Start (OHS) provides grants to operate both Head Start and Early Head Start programs directly to
public and private agencies in Nevada. Programs engage parents in their children's learning and help them in making progress toward
their educational, literacy and employment goals. Significant emphasis is placed on the involvement of parents in the administration of
local Head Start programs.
The Nevada Head Start State Collaboration and Early Childhood Systems Office (HSSCO/ECCS) is a federally funded by two federal
grants. The HSSCO grant is received from the Administration for Children and Families - Office of Head Start. The Early Childhood
Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) grant is through the Health Services and Resources Administration - Maternal Child Health Bureau.
The Nevada HSSCO/ECS is located in the Director's Office of the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services.
"Through statewide partnerships, the Nevada Head Start State Collaboration and Early Childhood Systems Office enhances
relationships, builds systems, and promotes comprehensive quality services to meet the needs of young children and their families"
