These components are at the center of high-quality child care and early learning experiences.

Gov. Lujan Grisham announces launch of groundbreaking new child care search tool

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and the New Mexico Early Childhood Education and Care Department (ECECD) announced on Tuesday the launch of a new child care search platform designed to help New Mexico families find child care that fits their needs. The Child Care Finder allows parents and caregivers to search for one of the over 1,000 child care programs statewide, filtering by proximity, age of child, quality rating, tuition, language, program type, and more.

“Making sure that every New Mexico family and child has access to affordable quality child care is a cornerstone of the work of this administration, and we are committed to continuing to close remaining barriers to access,” said Gov. Lujan Grisham. “It can be stressful for families to find care for young children, and we want to do everything we can to set up families and kids for success.”

The Child Care Finder is a continuation of ECECD’s partnership with Wonderschool, a platform that provides a powerful suite of business and marketing tools to child care providers.
