Private Child Care Needs Your Support in Light of COVID-19

For decades, the private child care industry has been the backbone of our state’s economy, and without it, parents would not be able to go to work or school, preventing our economy from growing and flourishing.


When public education and other businesses closed across the State of New Mexico, the early education community stepped up.


Our private providers ensure essential workers can serve our community knowing their children are in good hands, all while keeping staff and families safe and enduring expenses to keep their businesses afloat. 


New Mexico, we are in this together. 


We must band together in support of the workers who care for the most important thing in your life: your children.


Thank you Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham for your continued support for New Mexico’s early education providers.


Private child care workers have been here from the beginning. We haven’t closed, but we’ve taken precautions to care for the families of first responders and essential workers.


We have been here all along, and our commitment to New Mexico’s children isn’t going anywhere.
