Hawaii Head Start

Head Start is a national child development program for children from birth to age 5 and their families.

The Department of Human Services licenses Head Start Programs as childcare centers.  However, in accordance with HRS 302L-1.5(e), under Act 178 of Session Laws Hawaii, 2012, functions of the Head Start Collaboration Office have been transferred from the DHS to the Executive Office of Early Learning.   For more information about Head Start Programs, visit http://earlylearning.hawaii.gov/.
