Head Start is built upon the understanding that the development of young children is deeply influenced by their family, by their community, by their physical and mental health, as well as by the educational experiences to which they are exposed. The 1975 Head Start Program Performance Standards define high-quality services in early childhood education, parent involvement, social services and health. These standards have been the foundation of Head Start, and they have served as a model for state and local early childhood initiatives, including the state of Tennessee’s Pre-K program. Founded by President Lyndon B. Johnson, Head Start works with 3- and 4-year-old at-risk children to prepare them for entering kindergarten. The agency covers eight counties in Northeast Tennessee. Head Start and its delegate agencies serve more than 1,000 children and their families. The Full Day/Full Year program is specifically designed for working parents. This enables parents to work toward self-sufficiency while relaxing in the knowledge that their child is in a program that offers much more than just day care.
