New Mexico Early Childhood Needs Assessment
November 12, 2019
In 2019, the State of New Mexico received a 1-year, $5.4 million planning federal Preschool Development Grant Birth-5 (PDG B-5) which is being led by the NM PDG B-5 State Leadership Team including the Governor’s Office, the Children, Youth, and Families Department (CYFD), the Public Education Department (PED), and the Department of Health (DOH). To generate ideas for a Statewide Early Learning Strategic Plan, the PDG B-5 grant funded a comprehensive statewide Needs Assessment. Through a competitive process, the New Mexico Early Childhood Development Partnership was selected to assist the NM PDG B-5 State Leadership Team in the execution of the Statewide Early Childhood Needs Assessment and Strategic Plan for New Mexico. Below is a link to the summary of the Needs Assessment in English and Spanish.
