Head Start: Sites and Funded Enrollment

About this data

Total number of children that Head Start programs in Illinois are funded to enroll at any one time. Enrollment numbers include center-based and home-based enrollment. These numbers do not include Early Head Start or Migrant and Seasonal Head Start enrollment.

Total funded enrollment numbers shown here differ somewhat from Head Start’s Program Information Report (PIR) because of differences in how grantees reported their site-based data to the HS Collaboration Office and how they reported their grantee-wide data to the federal Head Start program.

IECAM’s Head Start data description page includes detailed information about Head Start data and sources. In addition, the page provides descriptions of Head Start programs and the number of sites.
