The State of Maine has sixteen Head Start grantees, operating eleven Head Start (HS) programs, three American Indian & Alaska Native Head Start (AIAN HS) programs, and thirteen Early Head Start (EHS) programs (see Table 1 in the linked report). In the 2015–2016 program year, sites operated by these sixteen grantees served 4,126 children and pregnant women.
The majority of Maine Head Start enrollees (88 percent) participate in a center-based program; the most popular program option is part-week (four days) enrollment in a center (Figure 1 in the linked report). Most children (91 percent) enrolled in part-week programs are also enrolled for part-day programming (6 hours or fewer per day).
