Grand Hyatt Washington in Washington, DC

Head Start's 11th National Research Conference was held June 18-20, 2012 at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, D.C. The theme of the 11th Conference was fostering young children's success in learning and coping. Children and families in Head Start reflect the increasing diversity of our nation and therefore we need to understand the nuances of diverse development, including what is universal and what is context-specific. The conference program presented culturally sensitive perspectives regarding at-risk populations. Studies involving diverse settings, communities and contexts within multicultural and multi-national frameworks particularly enriched the research base.
