Head Start is a comprehensive, family-focused program that prepars children both academically and socially for a smooth transition into kindergarten supported by federal and state funds. Please take a few minutes to view the animated video below: "One Window of Opportunity", which captures a child's perspective on the vast possibilities Head Start offers America's young children. This animated video spotlights the critical "window of opportunity" during the first five years of a child's life, when essential cognitive, social, and emotional development occurs.

In 2001, EITC program overwhelmingly passed the legislature and was signed into law by former Governor Tom Ridge. The business community has overwhelmingly responded the challenge. To date, over 3,600 companies have pledged in excess of $350 million dollars to the programs. The children of Pennsylvania thank you! The EITC has accomplished what many in Pennsylvania have been advocating for years: to get the business community more involved in education. The EITC enables companies to support local non-profit charities, at minimal cost, instead of sending their tax dollars to Harrisburg.
