This policy brief is the fifth of a series of analyses of Head Start Program Information Report (PIR) data by CLASP (Center for Law and Social Policy). It describes the picture for Head Start and Early Head Start children, families, and programs in the 2002-2003 program year. In this brief, Head Start refers to all Head Start programs, including programs for preschool age children and programs serving infants, toddlers, and pregnant women, while Early Head Start refers specifically to programs serving infants, toddlers, and pregnant women. This brief presents 2003 data, which highlights several changes of five percentage points or greater since 2002. The Head Start program was designed to provide or link children and families with the necessary component of promoting early learning. The data presented in this document shows that the program helps families access an array of services that can help parents in their roles as their children's first teachers, such as parent education, health education, and crisis intervention.
