Celebrating Head Start’s Commitment to Native American Children

In honor of Native American Heritage Month this November, the National Head Start Association will shine a spotlight on Native American programs, educators and alumni who are making a difference in their communities. 

Did you know that over the past year (2013-2014) 24,405 American Indian and Alaskan Native children and pregnant women have been served by Early Head Start and Head Start? Thanks to 212 Native American grantees thousands of children during this period have received critical early learning programs and health and wellness services.

Many local programs also infuse culturally rich traditions and tribal languages into their curriculum and outreach to the community.  We applaud your efforts to reach and teach every child!  Is your program one of them?  Please share your story with us at ogoumbri@nhsa.org

Check back throughout the month of November for stories and features that honor the contributions and culture of our Native American Head Start community; help us celebrate the month by sharing this with your networks on social media!
