APS has partnered with various community agencies to ensure the availability of child care services.  These services are limited and are targeted to support first responders and other essential workers (see March 23 instructions from the state.) Parents and or guardians who are able to stay home with children, are encouraged to assist in containing the spread of COVID-19 by keeping children home. Programs are available during regular business hours at some schools. The programs are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

All child care providers follow required the New Mexico Children Youth and Family guidelines, as well as the guidelines released by the CDC for containing the spread of COVID-19.  Providers are taking extra measures to ensure that everyone in the program stays healthy including strategies such as:

  • daily screenings of child and staff health
  • requiring ill/symptomatic children or staff to stay home
  • keeping children away from each other and/or in small groups
  • establishing check-in and check-out areas outside of program spaces
  • having children and staff wash hands upon arrival to program and throughout the day
  • sanitizing equipment and spaces after use and every hour
  • consistently reminding everyone to be very mindful of using health practices.
