Head Start/Early Head Start Services

What is Head Start/Early Head Start?

Head Start/Early Head Start is an early learning program nationally recognized for high quality, family-centered education for children ages 0 to 5 years. 


The goal of all Head Start and Early Head Start programs is to promote school readiness in young children of all abilities from families with incomes below poverty guidelines. Our programs integrate social and intellectual development through the provision of education, health, family, nutrition and other services.

Easterseals partners with early childhood programs in the city of Chicago and suburban Cook County. These collaborations give children and families the opportunity for a brighter future and a head start to success. View map of locations.
