About the Center for Policy, Data, and Research

The mission of the NHSA Center for Policy, Data, and Research is to generate new knowledge to lead reform for stronger child and family outcomes, informed by outstanding practices from the Head Start community. The Center generates new analyses and reflections on program and policy priorities, and strengthens dialogue and collaboration between Head Start practitioners and researchers.

Navigate the Center to learn more about Head Start nationally and in your state, the research that has proven the Head Start model’s success over fifty years, and NHSA’s Policy and Research Agendas that lay out our vision for Head Start’s strong and effective future.
