Project Description
The Family Development Program (FDP) makes significant contributions to critical goals that have been set for NM's early childhood policy agenda. As part of UNM's public trust, we have a strong history of working with minority communities that bring depth of cultural experience for early childhood systems change. FDP promotes best practices of research, reflective practice, social and emotional - intellectual child development, and cultural competencies that assure professionals work respectfully with cultural and family differences.
Annual community partnership application outlines professional development goals and plans for outreach to involve early childhood educators and parents
