*The ultimate goal of the Region 7 ESC Early/Head Start program is to provide support that pro­motes positive parenting outcomes by addressing families’ needs and ensuring families are assisted in gaining self-sufficiency and children are ready for school. Region 7 Head Start PFCE goals have been aligned with the School Readiness goals and the following 7 PFCE outcomes to ensure this goal is achieved:

  1. Family Well-Being: Parents and families are safe, healthy, and have increased financial security.
  2. Positive Parent-Child Relationships: Beginning with transitions to parenthood, parents and families develop warm relationships that nurture their child’s learning and development.
  3. Families As Lifelong Educators: Parents and families observe, guide, promote, and participate in the everyday learning of  their children at home, school, and in their communities.
  4. Families As Learners: Parents and families advance their own learning interests through education, training and other experiences that support their parenting, careers, and life goals.
  5. Family Engagement in Transitions: Parents and families support and advocate for their child’s learning and development as they transition to new learning environments, including EHS to HS, EHS/HS to other early learning environments, and HS to kindergarten through elementary school.
  6. Family Connections To Peers and Community: Parents and families form connections with peers and mentors in formal or informal social networks that are supportive and/or educational and that enhance social well-being and community life.
  7. Families as Advocates and Leaders: Families participate in leadership development, decision-making, program policy development, or community and state organizing activities to improve children's development and learning experiences.
