The Division of Child and Family Development Services has a partnership with Albuquerque Public Schools and community agencies to offer comprehensive child and family development programs.

Through these programs, we promote empowerment of families, including teen parent, by enhancing the unique strengths of each family through intensive, comprehensive, and integrated supported services.

These services include:

  • Early Head Start Program for children 3-years-old and younger.
  • Child Development Centers for preschool children 3 to 5-years-old.
  • Pre-Kindergarten for children 4-years-old before Sept. 1 of the enrollment year.

The child development centers emphasize developmentally appropriate curriculum including early literacy in a safe, quality, learning environment.

Commitment to Families

The Division of Child and Family Development Services is committed to supporting families by working towards self-sufficiency and raising a generation of healthy and self-realized children as a basic foundation for economic development.
