Head Start Programs

Head Start is a federally-funded education program for young children from low-income families. The federal government houses an annual Program Information Report (PIR) with reporting outcomes forĀ each Head Start center.

The outcomes depicted below should not be interpreted as quality evaluations of individual Head Start programs. Each program operates in different communities with unique challenges. These data help illuminate challenges to achieving oral health care access for low-income children.

Programs operating multiple sites may not have all sites reflected on the map. Data are self-reported by each program. Not all measures are reported by every organization.
