2017 accountability report: Early childhood


New Mexico's early childhood care and education system begins prenatally and extends through age 8. Services for improving the health, safety, stability, and education of New Mexico's children span several state agencies, including the Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD), the Department of Health (DOH), the Human Services Department (HSD), and the Public Education Department (PED). Concern regarding low or declining performance in key indicators such as the rate of repeat child maltreatment, immunization, and reading proficiency of low-income children have been raised. With this knowledge, the Legislature invested in multiple prevention and intervention strategies over the last several years, such as home visiting and prekindergarten. The Early Childhood Accountability Report is intended to provide a system-wide look at key early childhood indicators across state agencies and consolidate information regarding expenditures and outcomes. The report provides trend data indicating mixed performance results on measures reported last year. (author abstract)
