The New Mexico Early Childhood Strategic Plan 2021–2024

This plan charts out key goals, objectives, and actions to meet identified needs, track progress, and provide a detailed view of the early childhood landscape and a comprehensive strategy for moving forward.

Child Care Copay Waiver Extended

As COVID-19 continues to impact our communities, we are committed to supporting families and child care providers across the state by extending waivers for parent child care copayments.

Moments Together

Babies are always learning, and you already have what it takes to teach them. From breakfast to bedtime there are tons of simple, everyday moments you share with your little one that can put them on the path to a bright future.

Supporting Families

We work to ensure that all New Mexican families and young children have equitable access to high-quality early childhood opportunities.

Supporting Providers

We are committed to improve child well-being outcomes and strengthen family support services through continuous quality improvement.
