Head Start and Early Head Start are comprehensive child and family development programs. Both programs are designed to develop the basic educational skills necessary to succeed in school and the social skills to participate and subsequently contribute to the welfare of the community. As a national program, Head Start began in 1965 and CEDA initiated the first Head Start program in suburban Cook County just two years later. CEDA Head Start currently serves 2,877 pre-school children and their families through thirty Head Start centers in suburban Cook County.
