The Spring 1998 issue contains articles on the National Head Start Association, news from the Alaska Head Start Association, and the Alaska governor's remarks at the National Head Start Conference. The Summer 1998 issue highlights the importance of early experience for brain growth and development, the effects of early comprehensive programs for children and families, and a conference schedule for "The Early Years, The Critical Years" conference.
