NHSA regularly conducts surveys of the Head Start field to ensure our policy and advocacy work is informed by the knowledge and experience of practitioners and families.

CLOSED: Head Start Program Models Survey

With President Obama's recent proposal to make full-day Head Start services more available, it's important for NHSA to understand where programs are already providing a full-day of services, what it really costs, and what the most pressing issues are for programs. We invite Head Start program leaders to complete the survey and help us understand how your local model works!

Closed Survey: 2015-2016 Head Start Research Agenda

In the fall of 2014, NHSA invited families, alumni, practitioners, researchers, and leaders in the Head Start community to share their thoughts on the research priorities that will ensure we can continue to serve children and families innovatively, effectively, and for another fifty years to come. Visit the Research Agenda to see what grew out of their responses.
