Heading to Kindergarten

The Office of Early Learning and School Readiness Head Start Collaboration Project and its’ partners are excited to launch Heading to Kindergarten!

Heading to Kindergarten is part of a unique national initiative focused on building partnerships between Head Start and public schools that support successful transitions to kindergarten.

The Heading to Kindergarten project will provide resources, professional development and technical assistance aimed at improving connections between Ohio Head Start programs and their receiving elementary school in districts across the State. The goal is to develop guidance and resources based on best practices to enhance collaboration between early care and education programs, public schools and community partners as a critical pathway to better child outcomes.
