Early childhood in Portland: Perspectives on child care and development

The purpose of this project was to ascertain a more detailed understanding of parents’ views on developmental screenings and family, friend, and neighbor care for young children from immigrant, refugee, and/or asylee communities that speak either Arabic, French, or Somali in Portland, Maine with the intention of informing future strategies that can be implemented by the Cumberland County Developmental Screening Community Initiative (DSCI) and Starting Strong, the early childhood initiative that is a part of Portland ConnectED. Through a collaborative process, Starting Strong, DSCI, the Data Innovation Project (DIP), and Maine Immigrant Access Network (MAIN) sought to address two distinct research questions: one for the DSCI specific to parents’ views on developmental screenings and one for Starting Strong specific to parents’ perspectives and use of family, friend, and neighbor (FFN) care.
