Early Head Start Research and Evaluation

The Administration on Children, Youth and Families chose 17 Early Head Start programs to participate in a national evaluation in 1996. This research evaluation was designed to promote continuous improvement within Early Head Start programs and to meet the 1994 reauthorizations requirements for an evaluation of Early Head Start. The 17 programs included 3,001 children and families.

The Early Head Start and Research Evaluation Project was funded in two waves: the Birth to Three Phase (1996-2001) and the Pre-Kindergarten Follow-up Phase (2001-2004). The Birth to Three Phase was congressionally mandated, incorporating an implementation study, an impact evaluation, and local research projects. The Pre-Kindergarten Follow-Up Phase was funded in 2001 by the Administration for Children and Families, and will evaluate children after leaving Early Head Start until they enter Kindergarten.

For more information on the Early Head Start Research and Evaluation Project, visit the website of the Administration for Children & Families, Office of Planning, Research & Evaluation.
