The Migrant and Seasonal Head Start Supplement to the National Agricultural Workers' Survey was developed to ask questions regarding farm workers' child care preference and knowledge of Migrant and Seasonal Head Start. Researchers explored National Agricultural Worker Survey data on families eligible for Migrant and Seasonal Head Start to provide descriptive information.
The average migrant and seasonal head start-eligible household included 6-7 people, including four or more immediate family members. Three percent of the-eligible families reported speaking an indigenous language predominantly (neither Spanish nor English). Families reported that their primary reason for choosing their current child care was ‘trust' and the secondary reason was ‘convenience.'
