Part of NHSA’s mission is to coalesce the Head Start community to raise public awareness and understanding about the Head Start Advantage. In that spirit, NHSA has launched an exciting new resource during our Fall Leadership Institute: the Head Start Language Playbook!
Created with support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Language Playbook is intended to help you and other Head Start advocates have better, more effective conversations about Head Start’s mission with the public. Whether you’re talking with a member of Congress, a school superintendent, or a parent, we hope the tips in this Playbook help you better communicate the power of Head Start with them.
Now, a digital version of the Language Playbook is available for download! Available exclusively for NHSA members, the easy-to-read PDF and “e-pub” version of the Playbook can be accessed at the link at the top of this page.
NHSA will continue to roll out a suite of tools and trainings over the coming months to help you make the most of this new guide. These include:
We will also offer interactive training led by the experts who created the Playbook at upcoming NHSA events, including the Parent and Family Engagement Conference in December 2018!
These hands-on workshops will offer opportunities to practice using the new language in real-life situations. And they will equip you with the knowledge you need to teach others in the Head Start community how to use the new language.
