ELOF2GO is a mobile resource for teachers who want to access and learn more about the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework (ELOF). The application (app) provides on-the-go access to the ELOF goals for children and effective teaching practices in support of those goals. It is designed for teachers, family child care providers, and home visitors. Download it now for your Apple or Android device.

Parent & Staff surveys coming soon...

You will be emailed a link for a parent survey and staff survey. Please share the parent survey link with families and complete the staff survey. Please make an effort to have as many parents as possible complete the surveys. Every classroom must have parent feedback from these surveys. These are used in our self assessment and goal setting process. Staff surveys will be emailed to everyone.
