Preschool Details: ABCD’s Head Start and Early Head Start programs help over 2,400 young children and their families each year, and prepare them for success in school and life by providing high-quality early education. Children ages 3-to-5-years-old attend 31 Head Start sites across the city. Infants, toddlers and pregnant mothers get the support they need at Early Head Start Centers in Dorchester, East Boston and the South End. Year-round, extended-day programs enable parents to go to school or work. These programs help children learn during the most important years for brain development. They offer comprehensive support for parents and children - including health services, nutrition and social services to keep families strong. Because Head Start knows that parents are the most important teachers, parents are deeply involved in the program. Parents are leaders in making policy and guiding programs, volunteering in the classroom and advocating for the needs of young children. ABCD’s Head Start program is at the forefront of cutting-edge work in early education - from fighting childhood obesity, to involving fathers, to building school readiness, to training teachers to meet high standards. Partners include Boston’s leading hospitals and universities.
