Here's what you need to know


  1. Last Free Music Zoom Class with Nick Young on Wednesday, November 16, 2022 @ 10:00 AM, ET.

Take advantage of this opportunity for your kiddos to have a fun, engaging, memorable experience.

  3. Facilitating Kindergarten Transitions: The Role of Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) between Head Start and Local Education Agencies, agreements between Head Start grantees and schools often lack clear strategies for successful kindergarten transition and instead typically describe high-level policy goals, researchers found. This project examined memoranda of understanding (MOUs) between Head Start programs and local education agencies (LEAs). “MOUs between Head Start programs and LEAs may not be meeting their full potential in aligning and supporting the implementation of cross-system transition strategies,” wrote Kyle DeMeo Cook, Mitchell R. Barrows, Stacy B. Ehrlich Loewe, Van-Kim Lin, and Nola du Toit. OPRE, September 2022
