Las Cumbres' Child and Family Services Department offers a continuum of closely integrated programs for infants and children through Early Intervention and with Infant and Early Childhood Behavioral Health programs; with Family Navigation Supports and through Home Visiting and Low Birth Weight Prevention advocacy and education. The department also includes an Española-based Pre-K Therapeutic Preschool.

Behavioral Health offers a range of evidence-based services for families with children ages birth to six who have social-emotional vulnerabilities and/or special developmental needs. Behavioral Health services are offered in Rio Arriba and Los Alamos counties, as well as in Santa Fe through the Santa Fe Community Infant Program. Additional supports are offered by the agency's Infant Teams for families residing in Santa Fe, Rio Arriba, and Taos counties with children ages birth to three. Infant Team client families are involved with New Mexico's Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) Child Protective Services as well as with the State's First and Eighth Judicial District Courts. Many of these children are in foster care and program staff work to improve the psychological and developmental care available to infants and toddlers as well the quality of information provided to all parties involved.

The Early Intervention program (also known as Family Infant Toddler, (or FIT) provides therapeutic and developmental services and supports to families and their children ages birth to three who have or are at risk for developmental delays and/or disabilities.

The agency's Confident Parenting Home Visiting Program, Level I, Level II and Level II-S services, in Santa Fe and Rio Arriba counties provides information, support and encouragement through home-based services for families of infants prenatal to age three. Family Support Services as well as Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention programs are available in Santa Fe, Rio Arriba, and Taos Counties with emotional support and connection to community resources. Additional programs include Padres Unidos Fatherhood supports, support groups for Grandparents Raising Grandchildren, Circle of Security™ Parenting Classes, and Respite Services. Nurturing Centers have recently been established in Taos and Peñasco, financially assisted by The Robert T. Keeler Foundation; contact the agency's Taos  office for more information about the centers.

All services provided through our Child and Family Services division help children who are experiencing delays to develop the skills they are lacking, thereby enhancing their readiness for school, ability to reach other developmental milestones, and capacity to gain other necessary skills later in life.  Our services help children with delays and social-emotional difficulties to get back on track and prepare them for healthy relationships and successful learning throughout their life. Las Cumbres  is known for its emphasis on supporting healthy caregiver–child relationships as the most effective way to ensure healthy development.  The heart of all our Child and Family Services programs is our relationship-based philosophy and our commitment to families over time. Many families are able to receive wrap around services across multiple programs within the department.
