Georgia State University Research Center on Head Start Quality
The purpose of the Georgia State University Research Center on Head Start Quality (GSU RCHSQ) was to support Head Start's role as a model program for providing quality child and family services. The GSU RCHSQ worked in partnership with three large Head Start grantees to: (1) define quality Head Start program practices, (2) identify effective methods of assessing and monitoring program quality, (3) disseminate information about quality program practices, and (4) work collaboratively with the Consortium of Research Centers on Head Start Quality. Site-specific and cross-site research was conducted to explore linkages between program practices, quality measures, and child and family outcomes, utilizing a contextual or ecological model of development.
