FACES of Head Start: Our children, our families, our classrooms: Charting children's learning and development during one year in Head Start: FACES 2009
This brochure presents findings from the 2009 cohort of the Head Start Family and Child Experiences Survey (FACES). FACES is a nationally representative, longitudinal study of Head Start children, families, classrooms, and programs. Topics that FACES data cover include: child characteristics, learning, and development; family characteristics and perspectives on Head Start; and classroom quality and teacher characteristics. Findings from FACES 2009, which covers the 2009-2010 program year, show that approximately 14 percent of Head Start children have a disability and most begin Head Start with below-average academic skills, though they show growth over the course of the year. More than a quarter of children come from families in which a language other than English is
primarily spoken to them. The typical Head Start teacher has nine years of experience, and half of teachers have at least a bachelor's degree.
