Opportunities to Strengthen Early Childhood Services, Programs, and Systems in New Mexico

The report, "Opportunities to Strengthen Early Childhood Services, Programs, and Systems in New Mexico" is the result of a special programmatic and fiscal analysis regarding early childhood services and systems in New Mexico. Though New Mexico is nationally recognized as a leader in efforts to improve early childhood health, development, education, and well-being, more can be done to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and overall impact of these efforts. This analysis:

  • Describes opportunities for improving collaboration and reduced duplication;
  • Identifies areas where blended funding could produce better service delivery outcomes and cost effectiveness;
  • Identifies existing structures and processes that facilitate an integrated early childhood system of care in New Mexico;
  • Identifies successful projects and programs that can be replicated; and
  • Makes recommendations for action.
