This report estimates Early Head Start impacts on children and families when children were in fifth grade. It includes additional nonexperimental analyses to inform program practice and guide future research. Impacts on the full sample of children and families in the grade 5 followup suggest that for the overall sample, Early Head Start did not continue to have the broad pattern of impacts for child and family outcomes seen at earlier ages; however, there were interesting patterns of impacts for some subgroups.
