Head Start & Early Head Start

Head Start and Early Head Start statewide programs prepare Alaska’s most vulnerable children for success in school and in life by encouraging social and cognitive development. While Head Start primarily serves three- and four-year-old children, Early Head Start programs work with infants and toddlers under the age of three.
