Ahrough its First Teacher Home Visiting program, the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education allocates MIECHV funding to eligible Home Visiting programs that provide support to parents with young children up to kindergarten entry.
Currently, MIECHV supports Home Visiting services for more than 1,500 families in 43 counties across the state. These families are enrolled in one of three early learning Home Visiting programs, Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY), Parents as Teachers or Nurse Family Partnership.
“Home Visiting programs have played an essential role in helping families across the state learn how to be more engaged in their child’s life during their child’s critical early years,” said Jeana Ross, the secretary of the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education. “This grant will help ensure that more Alabama families will be able to receive developmentally appropriate resources and support in their own homes to help them provide more early learning opportunities for their children.”
