2014 Needs Assessment of Seattle Head Start, Early Head Start and Step Ahead Programs for the City of Seattle Human Services Department

An assessment of childcare availability for four year olds in the Seattle Metropolitan area.


The Community Needs Assessment is a combined effort of the Seattle Early Education Collaborative that is comprised of Seattle’s Early Head Start and Head Start Programs, the City of Seattle Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP), and the City of Seattle Step Ahead Program. The Community Assessment meets the assessment requirement for federally funded Head Start programs and helped programs: (1) identify the resources and needs of Seattle residents; (2) understand the current condition of all families in the community; (3) evaluate the current service system’s capacity to support families’ healthy growth and development; (4) modify Human Services Department programs or services to respond to community-specific needs; and (5) build community support for and ownership of new ways of meeting their needs.
