The NewMexicoKids.org Early Childhood Education and Care Family Services Portal is an online tool for parents and families to find child care services, childhood development programs, early childhood education, and developmental delay intervention services. This tool, along with all services provided by the New Mexico Early Childhood Services Center, is free to use for all New Mexico families.
This portal is brought to you by the New Mexico Early Childhood Services Center Resource and Referral team at the University of New Mexico.
To find services, go to the homepage of the portal and enter a valid address and select a range for us to search in. Not all search results will fall in the range you select, because some services operate on a county-wide or state-wide basis. When you enter in your address, we use that information to find early childhood services near your location. After entering your information, you can filter your results to find the right match for you.
There are two options to filter your search results. You can select a category of service from the "Quick Filter" option, or you can view additional filters by clicking "+ Advanced Filters" just below the dropdown. Refer to the image below for details.
Advanced filters work off of an "or" logic system. That is, if you use an advanced filter for ages "Infant to 1 year" and "1 to 2 years", the filter will exclude anything that is not one or the other.
There are two convenient ways to save your search results:
When you save a provider to your list, you can export your entire list to a PDF for printing or emailing. These PDFs can be quite large, so keep that in mind when selecting which providers to save.
