At NMCAA Early Head Start we give parents the skills and support to make the most of the first three years in their child’s life. Families with children ages birth to 3 are enrolled, sometimes even before the baby is born. The NMCAA Early Head Start program is a year round home visiting program, with opportunities for families to attend socialization experiences at several different area Family Development Centers. Parenting issues, health assessments and developmental milestones are promoted. Both parent and child receive support in their development. As children turn three, they are assisted in transitioning into a 3-5 year old program. We are also working with Child Care Partners on a model that enhances the connection between the parent and their child care provider through home visits done at the child care and in the home.
Who is Eligible?

Children who are 3 to 5 years old are eligible for Head Start services. Pregnant women and children from birth to 3 years of age are eligible for Early Head Start services. Children and families who are homeless, in foster care, or receive TANF or SSI are also eligible for services. Eligibility is determined by Head Start program staff and some families may be eligible for services if they are determined to be at or below the federal poverty level. Some grantees enroll a percentage of children from families with incomes above the Poverty Guidelines as well.

Families are encouraged to apply.
