Highest Quality Early Childhood Development through Honoring Relationships Rooted in Equity and Social Justice

Change The First 5 Years is a video that was adapted from the Ounce of Prevention resources for New Mexico.  It has been promoted as an excellent resource used by many early childhood advocates and program leaders throughout our state. The Family Development Program makes copies of it available to Early Childhood Leaders through our annual Neighborhood Leadership Academy, and shares it with others through statewide training.
