As part of President Obama’s Early Education Plan, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) will support expanding high-quality early learning to infants and toddlers through the Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships. Through these partnerships, Early Head Start (EHS) grantees will partner with center-based and family child care providers who agree to meet EHS Program Performance Standards and to provide comprehensive, full-day, full-year, high-quality services to infants and toddlers from low-income families.
ACF has launched an Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships Web page. The launch includes the following resources:

This webinar is targeted to the staff of Head Start and other early childhood programs that screen vision in young children. It is important for these centers to develop a strong vision health program that ensures all children will have the opportunity to develop their best visual potential.
This webinar is the second in a series from the Year of Children’s Vision initiative.
At the end of this webinar you will be able to:
- Select vision screening methodology, for acuity testing or instrument based screening, that is age-appropriate and evidence-based
- Describe the importance of developing procedures and policies which allow for communication between and among the early education program staff, other health care providers involved in the child’s care, and parents/caregivers
- Create appropriate policies for the screening or referral of children with special needs or children who are difficult-to-screen
