    Lutheran Services Florida and Head Start of Pinellas County are wrapping up Head Start Awareness Month celebrations with one last hurrah in the Dunedin Head Start/Early Head Start Center, which has 73 children enrolled. U.S. Rep. David Jolly took a tour of the facility early Monday afternoon to learn more about the program.

  • Center for Disease Control- Information on Ebola

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is stressing the importance of adherence to protocol: thoroughly screen for and identify cases, isolate ill people, contact people exposed to the infection and quarantine these contacts if they develop symptoms.

  • Early Childhood Development September News

    Current newsletter from the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Early Childhood Development, Health and Human Services

  • Head Start Research Agenda

    This winter, the National Head Start Association will be launching our new Center for Policy, Data, and Research. To inform the work of the Center, we're creating an updated Head Start Research Agenda. This will be most meaningful if we can gather perspectives from everyone connected to Head Start - including parents, staff, Head Start Associations, Collaboration Offices, researchers, and alumni. We hope you'll share your perspective and your experience by taking a quick survey on the research priorities that will ensure Head Start can continue to serve children and families innovatively, effectively, and for another fifty years to come. If you're able, please share it as well with grantees, research organizations, and others in your community.
