A portrait of Head Start programs: Findings from FACES 2009

This report is part of a series of reports describing data from the 2009 cohort of the Head Start Family and Child Experiences Survey (FACES 2009). Other FACES 2009 reports and data tables address the characteristics of Head Start children, their families, classrooms, and programs at program entry (Hulsey et al. 2011), during their first year in the program (Moiduddin et al. 2012), and child outcomes from program entry through program exit (Aikens et al. 2013). Another report focuses on describing aspects of the Head Start family and classroom environment that may support children's development (Malone et al. 2017), and a brief explores children's developmental progress and kindergarten environments in more depth (Aikens et al. 2017).The current report provides a portrait of Head Start programs, including characteristics of programs and management staff, supports provided to staff at all levels, and program services. An accompanying table set (Kopack Klein et al. 2017) provides additional detail on the findings in this report. (author abstract)
