Project ECHO at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center is partnering with the New Mexico Early Childhood Education & Care Department (ECECD) to distribute a survey to families of children ages 0-5 to assess the availability and utilization of programs and services throughout the state. The New Mexico Early Childhood Support Survey will be ready for distribution very soon, and we would appreciate your help with the distribution. The aim of this survey is to engage with families throughout New Mexico to understand their experiences and needs of early childhood services. The survey will provide information to guide ECECD policies and programs to best serve the needs of all young New Mexicans and their families. Our goal is to reach 3,000 or more families of children ages 0-5 throughout the state to assess the availability and utilization of early childhood programs and services as well as their future needs. We are offering a $5 e-gift certificate to the first 3,000 families that answer the survey.
To connect with families representing our diverse population and communities, the survey will be available in the four main languages spoken in New Mexico:
English, Spanish, Navajo, and Vietnamese.
We ask your assistance to join us in our outreach and distribution efforts to members of your community. Our ECHO Education Team has developed flyers and messages for social media posts, newsletters, and direct email. We will provide you will all materials necessary for outreach in electronic form, hard copy, or both depending on your needs, including posters that can be displayed on your Community Board.
Please fill out the interest form via this link:https://bit.ly/ECHOSurveyDistribution This will enable us to assist you and your team in distributing the survey, either online, flyers for community board or with paper surveys. After we compile the results of the survey, we will share our finding with a summary report that could inform your organization and possibly share insights into the community you serve.
Thank you for time and consideration of working with Project ECHO and ECECD to allow all families in New Mexico to voice their experiences, needs and concerns about early childhood programs and services. The responses collected will inform programs and access to early childhood services in New Mexico, and help shape policies that reduce disparities in our state.
