Meet and Maintain Full Enrollment Year-Round

Get knowledge on how to achieve Head Start ERSEA system goals including meeting and maintaining funded enrollment– in as little as three sessions.

Now more than ever, children and families in poverty need Head Start. Staff in local programs can benefit from HGJA’s ERSEA trainings and materials which provide in-depth insight on trends, regulatory requirements, and best practices to support families in poverty. These are unprecedented times! It is imperative that staff ensure “smooth entry” for low-income children and families accessing Head Start programs.

Help Families Get a Head Start.

Helping You Help Others

From urban areas in Chicago to rural areas in Texas, H.G. Jones & Associates has helped hundreds in early childhood and education, and human services agencies nationally/internationally, including territories in Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands to successfully navigate ERSEA regulatory mandates. Many of our very own executives were once Head Start children which proves that Head Start programs are a stepping stone to life achievements. Promote comprehensive services and school readiness goals for infants, toddlers, and preschool-aged children from low-income families.

Learn From Industry Experts.

Our ERSEA certified training courses are led by experts in the industry so that you will always get accurate, timely, and essential knowledge. HGJA facilitators are directly involved in helping you create ERSEA outcomes and removing barriers to meeting ERSEA goals. The information designed for each session is based on the Head Start Act, Final Rule on Head Start Eligibility, Head Start performance standards, and industry best practices. This means that what you learn is what will bring in results.

Meet Requirements The Right Way.

ERSEA system training is mandatory, but our courses go above and beyond the basic requirements. 1302.12(m) of the Head Start performance standards states: “A program must train all governing body, policy council, management, and staff who determine eligibility on applicable federal regulations and program policies and procedures”. We help you understand the ERSEA policies to meet requirements. Then we show you how to successfully execute outreach programs to recruit families into your program, helping you achieve and maintain enrollment goals.
