Options for Full-Day Services for Children Participating in Head Start . Summary


The Head Start director is very pleased that full-day services are being provided to so many children and that Head Start provides a model of service delivery that can be used throughout the early childhood community. The director feels that there are still more children that would benefit from full- day care, particularly infants and toddlers; however, the lack of availability of appropriate facilities is a major obstacle to her plans to continually expand the program. Land values are very high in Westchester County and unoccupied space is scarce. Issues of staff training and parent involvement remain somewhat problematic, but the grantee is determined to find ways to make the program continue to work.
