DEFINITIONS & SOURCES

COLLAPSE

Definitions: Federal and State-funded Head Start, Public School Pre-Kindergarten, PA Pre-K Counts and Child Care Works enrollment in Keystone STAR 3 or 4 providers are programs that provide high-quality publicly funded pre-kindergarten to children in PA.
Percents represent total child population ages 3-4 served.

Data Source: Federal Office of Head Start (prior to 2012), Pennsylvania Head Start Association, and PA Departments of Education and Human Services, Office of Child Development and Early Learning

Population estimates are provided by the Pennsylvania State Data Center and Pennsylvania Department of Health.

Footnotes: Head Start figures designate the number of slots available, not the number of children enrolled.  Throughout the year, multiple children could use one slot.

Early Head Start enrollments are excluded since the age is not the pre-kindergarten targeted population of  ages 3 and 4 years.

Beginning with 2013-14 data,
   - the Head Start category only includes Federal Head Start data
   - the Pre-K Counts category is no longer used
   - the unduplicated count of children in Pre-K Counts, Head Start - State, and Child Care Works in Keystone STAR 3 or 4 providers was added.  This data is not available for prior years.
