Services for Young Children of Migrant Farmworkers: A Report to the Governor and the Superintendent of Public Instruction.
Rondero, Virginia; Smith, Rosalie
Findings and recommendations related to six issues affecting migrant farmworker children ages 0 to 5 years are reported in order to provide evidence of the need for expanded services to these children and to provide direction for currently operating programs. The findings emphasize the following needs: (1) more reliable data about the number of young farmworker children present in California during peak harvest seasons; (2) elimination of barriers to better coordination of delivery services; (3) staff development programs for migrant child care program personnel; (4) increased parent participation in migrant child care programs, (5) upgraded existing migrant housing camps; and (6) expanded services to preschool-age migrant farmworker children. Recommendations for immediate implementation and other recommendations requiring further study before implementation are delineated for each of the issues discussed. Additionally, six attachments list state agencies that affect the delivery of services to young migrant farmworker children, the locations of state migrant camp sites, and migrant child programs operating in and outside of state migrant camps.
