Nancy Munro describes her initial contact with early childhood education and the events that led to her work as the nutritionist/dietician with the 1965 pilot Headstart Program in Montana. She explains the challenges of getting the program running and how it functioned as well as how she realized the effectiveness of positive reinforcement as she worked with mothers to improve cooking and nutrition habits. Munro recalls interactions with children, partents, administrators, and legislators.
