This Web site showcases research-based practices to ensure the health and mental wellness of Head Start staff, children, and families. The Center creates high-quality information to help every Head Start and Early Head Start program implement effective approaches to medical and dental care access, health awareness, obesity prevention in young children, emergency preparedness, and environmental safety. The Center will also inform the Head Start community of current OHS priorities, policies, and expectations to ensure healthy outcomes for children and families.
