Head Start plays an essential role in the health and safety of hundreds of thousands of children and families all across the country. As the global outbreak of the novel coronavirus continues, we recommend that Head Start programs closely monitor the recommendations of public health officials regarding how to slow the spread of COVID-19.
There is no higher priority for Team NHSA than the health and safety of Head Start children, families, and staff. We are working hard to share the Head Start community’s concerns with decision-makers in Washington, D.C, and we will support you in every way that we can during this difficult time.
We have compiled lists of helpful resources to assist you with best-practice information on keeping families and children healthy and safe. Additional resources on program management are also included to provide guidance during these unprecedented times. We will continue to update these resources lists as more becomes available.
