Head Start Family and Experiences Survey: FACES Findings--New Research on Head Start Outcomes and Program Quality
Administration for Children & Families
The Head Start Family and Child Experiences Survey (FACES) collects data on a nationally representative sample of Head Start programs, classrooms, teachers, parents, and children examining the quality and effects of Head Start. Three waves of data collection have occurred: in 1997, 2000, and 2003. Information presented in this publication is primarily based on the 2003 cohort, however, 1997 and 2000 data are also presented. Unless otherwise noted, the sample for the 2003 child outcomes analyses includes all 3-, 4-, and 5-year-old children who passed an English-language screener. It offers statistics on children, families, and classroom as part of Head Start's Program Performance Measures.
