Tools and resources for parents
We want early education and daycare at New Mexico Children First Learning Center® to be enriching and rewarding for whole families — parents and students alike. That’s why we give our parents ways to be active, involved and in the know.
Information for Parents
Established relationships with parents means we can share information positively and effectively to support children as much as possible.
Hours of Operation
Our center offers extended hours. We open from 6:00am to 6:00pm Monday through Friday. We are here to care for your children during the hours when other childcare facilities are closed. Our safe and secure facility will leave you with the peace of mind of knowing that your children are in loving hands.
We are required by The Department of Health to have a copy of each child's immunization records to be able to enroll your child in our facility. All medical information is stored, secured and safely.
Exploration often requires getting messy! We recommend an extra change of clothing to prepare for any unexpected issuesof the materials that we use are washable however, we are aware that some paint colours and other materials are difficult to fully remove.
Open communication between parents and staff is strongly encouraged. Teachers are encouraged to learn what is important to you as a parent and to use that information when implementing your child’s curriculum.
If your child is injured while at the centre, staff will administer basic first aid. If medical attention is required, attempts will be made to reach the parents immediately. Staff will call Emergency Services if required.
Children are encouraged to taste a variety of foods but no child is ever forced to eat foods that they do not wish to. All parts of the meal make up a child's nutritional requirement; therefore no food will be withheld.
Our Parent Handbook provides new parents with an understanding of the mission, philosophy, policies, and procedures followed at our center. Download checklist & Agreement form to make a smooth and fast enrollment. Explore our Events tab and join any of our fun filled events throughout the year.
