About Us

The Texas Early Childhood Education (ECE) Center is one component of the Texas Head Start Training and Technical Assistance Network.  Comprised of seven ECE Specialists, the Texas team supports Head Start/Early Head Start programs in improving program quality and implementing practices that ensure School Readiness for young children.

The ECE State Center focuses on four priority areas as set forth by the Office of Head Start:  School Readiness, Career and Professional Development, Parent and Family Engagement, and Collaboration.  It is the goal of the ECE Specialists to assist programs in planning and developing a thoughtful approach to each of these areas leading to positive outcomes for children.

The ECE Specialists serve as an additional layer of support for the grantees. In this role they collaborate with other early childhood leaders in the state to provide high quality training opportunities, resources, and to promote the implementation of evidence based standardized practices for children birth to five.  The Office of Head Start has 6 National Centers offering the latest research and best practices in early childhood education.
