BABIES CAN’T WAIT. THE EARLY YEARS OF LIFE MATTER BECAUSE BRAINS ARE BUILT FROM THE BOTTOM UP AND GROW VERY FAST.

TODAY’S CHILDREN ARE TOMORROW’S GROWN-UPS. HIGH-QUALITY CHILD CARE AND EDUCATION PROGRAMS PROVIDE SAFE, LEARNING, AND NURTURING ENVIRONMENTS THAT PREPARE YOUNG CHILDREN FOR SCHOOL WHILE HELPING THEIR PARENTS WORK. NEW MEXICO’S FUTURE DEPENDS ON PREPARING ALL OF OUR YOUNG CHILDREN—NO MATTER WHERE THEY LIVE OR HOW MUCH THEIR PARENTS EARN—TO BECOME THRIVING, CONTRIBUTING, AND PRODUCTIVE MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITIES. IF YOU NEED HELP FINDING HIGH-QUALITY CHILD CARE OR HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT CHILD CARE ASSISTANCE, CALL (505) 244-0502.

WHEN NEW MEXICO INVESTS IN ITS CHILD CARE WORKFORCE, IT YIELDS DIVIDENDS. EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT TRANSLATES INTO THRIVING ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT LATER ON. HIGH-QUALITY CHILD CARE AND EDUCATION PROGRAMS CAN ALSO HELP PREVENT CHILD ABUSE AND NEGLECT FOR KIDS WHO NEED IT MOST. WHEN WE MAKE INVESTMENTS IN EDUCATION AND CARE, CHILDREN GET THE DEVELOPMENT THEY NEED TO START SCHOOL READY TO LEARN. IF YOU NEED HELP FINDING HIGH-QUALITY CHILD CARE OR HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT CHILD CARE ASSISTANCE, CALL (505) 244-0502.
