Services Provided: The Idaho Association for the Education of Young Children (Idaho AEYC) is the state affiliate of the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the largest early childhood organization in the US. Idaho also has five local affiliated chapters: North Idaho AEYC, Eastern Idaho AEYC, Snake River AEYC, Treasure Valley AEYC, and Palouse Area AEYC. Our vision is to inspire and lead those who touch the lives of Idaho's children and encourage commitment to the ideal that every Idaho child deserves to live a satisfying childhood that allows them to develop to full potential. We work to fulfill our mission of improving the quality of life for Idaho's young children and their families by (1) improving professional practice in early care and education, (2) building public understanding and support, and (3) building and maintaining a strong, diverse and inclusive organization. The following projects are administered through Idaho AEYC:

...IdahoSTARS Professional Development System includes Registry, Career Pathway, Incentives and Scholarships, Mentor/Coaches, Reaching the STARS Quality Rating System, Trainer and Training Approval, and 7 Regional Child Care Resource and Referral Offices(CCR&R).
..Scholarships Academic scholarships to increase the level of education of people working in child care centers and family child care homes while making the educational process more affordable, increasing wages and reducing staff turnover. Scholarship funds are offered toward a Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential, an Early Childhood Associate Degree, a technical certificate, or Bachelor Degree in the field of early childhood education. ..Mentoring for Early Care and Education Project (M.E.C.E.)
The vision of M.E.C.E is to develop a pool of qualified professionals throughout Idaho's seven regions. Under the IdahoSTARS initiative, early care and education practitioners and/or directors can obtain financial assistance for mentor services in the following categories: Idaho Quality Child Care Apprenticeship program, 2) Individual Projects, 3) Accreditation support, 4) Environment Assessments, 5) and Child Care Health Consultants. M.E.C.E. is currently accepting applications for mentors wishing to work with providers as well as providers seeking mentor/coaching. To be eligible for mentoring services you must be enrolled in the IdahoSTARS Professional Development system. IdahoSTARS Quality Child Care Rating System is being piloted in 2008 to ensure that the assessment process is fair and equitable. The end result will include an assessment of child care programs, technical assistance and reassessment that results in a STAR rating of 1-5 stars. This will allow parents to determine the level of quality based on nationally recognized measures of quality in early care and education. A key component of the Quality Rating System is the STRENGTHENING FAMILIES training that helps child care providers include parents in their program planning and become a link to community services for the parents of the children they serve in child care.

..Idaho STATE TRAINING AND REGISTRY SYSTEM (IdahoSTARS) is responsible to monitor Idaho Child Care Program (ICCP) providers' eligibility for subsidy payment, Parent Child Care Referrals, Child Care Resource & Referral in all 7 Regions of Idaho, and Professional Development System for child care professionals.

Eligibility: Educational programming for children.
Services Provided: Second only to parents, television is the young child's most influential teacher. Nothing else in our culture can match television's ability to influence how children learn, think and act. Given the power of television, young children need adults to help them become wise television users. Many studies show that with selective viewing, television can contribute richly to school readiness.
In addition to providing over 56 hours weekly of high quality educational programming for children, Idaho Public Television's Ready To Learn services also provide extensive outreach services to local communities. These services include (free) workshops for parents, childcare providers and other early childhood professionals and distribution of children's books and PBS Families/para la Familia magazine. Ready To Learn is funded by a Ready To Learn Television Cooperative Agreement from the U.S. Department of Education through the Public Broadcasting Service.

Mountain States Early Head Start is a program of Mountain States Group, Inc.

What Is Early Head Start?

Head Start and Early Head Start programs provide comprehensive child development, health, nutritional, social and other services to economically disadvantaged children and families, with a special focus on assisting children develop skills that will help them be successful in school. While preschool Head Start has been around since the 1960’s, Early Head Start was established in 1995 to serve children from birth to three years of age in recognition of the mounting evidence that the earliest years matter a great deal to children’s growth and development.

Head Start programs engage parents in their children’s learning and help them in making progress toward their own educational, literacy and employment goals. Significant emphasis is placed on the involvement of parents in the administration of local Head Start programs.

Who Can Enroll?

Pregnant women may enroll as soon as they know they are pregnant and infants and toddlers may participate in the program beginning at birth until their third birthday. Families must have an income at or below the federal poverty level to qualify. Foster children and those whose families are homeless do not have to show proof of income to qualify. The Mountain States Early Head Start (MSEHS) service area is in the northern panhandle of Idaho and includes Coeur d’Alene, Post Falls, Rathdrum, Hauser, Spirit Lake and Athol and surrounding areas in Kootenai County and Sandpoint, Clark Fork and Hope and surrounding area in Bonner County.

There are all kinds of families enrolled at EHS: single mothers and fathers, two parent families, blended families, grandparents raising grandchildren and foster parents. We hope that fathers and mothers both will participate in home visits and all the other EHS activities available. In addition to parents, extended families often volunteer or attend EHS events. All of these people are important in children’s lives and we welcome their participation.
