Farmworker Daycare

The New York State Agri-Business Child Development Program (ABCD) has provided services to children of migrant farmworkers and other income eligible, agricultural workers across the state since 1946. The Program serves between 1,400 and 1,700 children per year in 11 licensed and National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) accredited childcare centers.

Children as young as eight weeks all the way up to school age can benefit from the services provided by ABCD. Comprehensive child development services, including health, mental health, oral health, nutrition, transportation, and age appropriate educational and physical activities are provided to each child, including services for children with disabilities. The Program utilizes the Head Start Program Performance Standards, which focus on Family Engagement, School Readiness and Community Partnership.
