Title: Evaluation of the Head Start Region III I am Moving, I am Learning (IM/IL) Program.
OMB No.: New Collection.
Description: The purpose of this evaluation is to examine the implementation of the Head Start project I am Moving, I am Learning (IM/IL) as a preventive intervention targeting obesity in children. IM/IL was designed to fit within the Head Start Performance Standards and the Head Start Child Outcomes Framework through enhancements to current teaching and family support practices by providing more focused guidance on quality movement, gross and fine motor development, and child nutrition.
This data collection will be conducted among programs implementing IM/IL in Region III, and will gain information about each site's program context and service components, including level of adoption of IM/IL enhancements, intensity of implementation, and sustainability of enhancements. Progress toward achieving outcomes and goals of the IM/IL program that can be measured will also be assessed.
Respondents: Head Start directors, management teams, teachers, and staff in Region III that received spring 2006 IM/IL training; parents or guardians of children who attend Head Start programs where IM/IL is being implemented.
