The project serves approximately 400 migrant children ranging in age from 1 month to 6 years in 9 day-care centers operated by an organization called Northwest Rural Opportunities. The curriculum is based on Jean Piaget cognitive development learning theory. English as a second language and Mexican American cultural heritage are stressed in the curriculum.
