Special review: Early childhood services accountability report card, gap analysis and spending plan

Previous Legislative Finance Committee (LFC) evaluations and national research confirm evidence-based interventions and early childhood education programs can improve child well-being, safety, and educational outcomes and close the achievement gap. In an effort to achieve these outcomes, the Legislature has taken action to invest in prekindergarten, childcare assistance, home visiting, and the state's extended school year program K-3 Plus, among others. Since FY12, early childhood appropriations have increased by almost $100 million, and the FY16 LFC recommendation adds another $25 million. This special review of early childhood programs in New Mexico analyzed continued needs and gaps in services, assessed current accountability data being collected, identified barriers to program expansion, and identified potential funding options to meet continued needs.
