Task 3: Early Childhood Education
Guideline: As noted by the Office of Migrant Education, “Early childhood education programs include any type of educational program that serves children in the preschool years and is designed to improve later school performance. Many early childhood education programs operate under the auspices of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Head Start is a federal government education initiative that has provided children from low-income families free access to early education. Even Start is designed to help break the cycle of poverty and improve the literacy of participating migrant families by integrating early childhood education, adult literacy or adult basic education, and parenting education into a unified family literacy program." Educators involved with early childhood education aimed at migrant children should be aware of these programs.
