CHILDCARE & EDUCATION

CHILDCARE SUPPORT

State child care facilities are still in operation. New Mexico Expands child care eligibility (read full news release here) and guarantees payments for child care providers during the public health emergency. The state has a child care Resource and Referral line to help families find child care:

1-800-691-9067; www.NewMexicoKids.org 

Families can also contact their CYFD eligibility specialist via phone or email to let them know they now need full-time care; our team across the state will amend the contracts. In addition, all parents receiving child care assistance will have their copays waived during the public health emergency.  CYFD will issue full-time child care assistance contracts to first responders and health providers who need child care. Please call 1-833-551-0518 to connect with the state’s child care Resource and Referral line or online to download a child care assistance application. During the emergency health declaration, the state will temporarily register family, friend and neighbor (FFN) providers who may be eligible to receive child care assistance funding; interested parties can call 1-833-551-0518. 

The New Mexico Regional Education Cooperatives Association is working with the New Mexico Public Education Department and the New Mexico Early Childhood Education & Care Department to assist families in finding available Child care services while schools are operating in a remote or hybrid environment. Here is the link for the guide to help you apply and understand the process. Here is the list to see if your eligible. If you need other resources around childcare call 1-800-691-9067. For more information visit the website https://www.newmexicokids.org/home/

We are encouraging those who can help friends and families with childcare while parents are still having to work to do so.
