The Migrant Education Program funds a School Readiness Program statewide that is, home-based and center-based, focusing on early childhood education. It is authorized under No Child Left Behind Act, Title I, Part C, Section 1304(6) (C). Projects are administered by 23 Migrant Education regions at 332 sites. Educational services are provided to migratory parents to enhance literacy levels, expand parenting skills, and three to five years are provided early childhood education and preschool services.


Families participating in the Migrant Education Program must be classified as "migratory." See the Migrant Education program eligibility requirements. Child must be between three to five years, both parent and children must participate together in project activities. California has 332 Migrant Education School Readiness project sites within 23 Migrant Education regions.
