Head Start (State Collaboration Office)

Head Start and Early Head Start offer families a variety of program options, including center-based, home-based, or a combination of both. For infants and toddlers, the home-based option includes a socialization day at the center where parents learn parenting skills along with new ways to promote their children’s development.

Most children in New Hampshire Head Start attend five days per week for part of the day. Nationally, almost half of the children participate in a 5-day, full day program option. For New Hampshire preschoolers who need a full day program while their parents are working, training or searching for a job, some Head Start programs administer full day services, while others collaborate with local child care programs.
