We need your input!  New Mexico’s new early childhood department — formed in 2020 as one of the first in the nation — is growing for you. If you take care of young ones ages 0–5, we need your help understanding what early childhood programs you use, what works well about them, and what improvements could be made to make them better for you and your family. Please take the survey HERE and give your input.



NMAEYC started off the month with a full crowd at UNM over the weekend, with a jam packed agenda and powerful presentations.  The Week of the Young Child continues with The Navajo Nation Early Childhood Collaborative  hosting many celebrations.

It's  a week's worth of fun, family-friendly, and engaging activities. Each day is themed and will feature activities correlating with each theme. The public is invited to these free events. Below is a general flyer for Week of the Young Child. Contact information is provided  if you have any questions.
