Personal Professional Development

Grant Partnerships

NMAEYC thrives on collaboration. NMAEYC loves to partner with other organizations on professional development grants – either for handling the funds or assisting with sourcing professional development contract providers. NMAEYC staff will work with you in framing the grant and will serve as a co-sponsor and/or collaborative partner. Contact Justin Spielmann, our Resource and Development Manager, at for more information.

Professional Development Workshops on Demand

One of NMAEYC’s goals is to develop the early childhood education professionals of New Mexico. If you want a professional development workshop tailored to your staff’s and organization’s needs NMAEYC can help. NMAEYC will utilize its statewide network to find the best professional development providers for whatever subject you need – STEM, trauma-informed care, social emotional learning, etc. Schedule a half day course or a full week of instruction, NMAEYC has the resources to meet your needs. Rates depend on the location, subject matter, and duration of your workshop and scheduling requires at least two months of lead time. Contact Michelle Garcia, our Communications and Program Support Coordinator, at for an initial consultation and discussion of your needs.
