With a mission to inform and enlighten readers about impairments and disorders impacting the physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development in children, the Journal of Childhood and Developmental Disorders aims to be a valuable resource on identifying innovative research on the prevention and intervention of developmental disorders. A popular field for the study of childhood development is in the area of early childhood education. Head Start is the largest early childhood education program in the U.S. and recent legislation tasked the Office of Head Start to revise its Performance Standards, which encompasses the rules and regulations for the federally funded program. This editorial identifies and reviews the changes in the Performance Standards proposed by the Office of Head Start in four key areas: Enrollment and attendance, teaching and learning, assessment, and disability standards. The potential outcome of the Performance Standards revision will warrant comprehensive research initiatives that could advance the field of prevention and intervention in early childhood development. Innovative multidisciplinary research in this area is discussed as a befitting contribution to the launch of the Journal of Childhood and Developmental Disorders.
