Related Information

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 parents -- by enhancing the unique strengths of each family through intensive, comprehensive, and integrated supported services.

These services include:

  • An Early Head Start Program for income-eligible families with children ages 3 years and younger
  • Child development centers for preschool children ages 3-5 years of age of working or student parents who meet income guidelines.

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.
