This document is comprised of the two issues in volume 4 of "Bridges," a publication produced by the California Head Start-State Collaboration Office to detail the activities of the educational partnership and to provide relevant information to programs participating in the partnership. The spring 1999 issue focuses on the service system for children with disabilities, with articles on finding day care for a special needs child, California's Early Start Program, the public school preschool special education program, and regional center services for children over age three. The issue also includes lists of agencies serving young children with disabilities, tips for child care providers on including children with special needs in their programs, parents' rights, descriptions of various Head Start/Early Head Start programs, and Head Start performance standards, as well as information on developing a violence-free environment for children, and recent legislation allowing nebulizer care in child care settings. The fall 1999 issue focuses on child health, especially on assisting staff and families in making referrals to the Healthy Families and Medi-Cal programs. The issue also focuses on how Head Start and other child care and development programs work together to develop full-day/full-year program options for families who need them. Included in this issue are articles on: collaboration/fiscal strategies, programs providing child health care, building a child care mental health consultant service, descriptions of Head Start-child care partnerships, and support for single parents and their children. Each issue includes Web sites for relevant resources. (KB)
