ECECD Childcare Assistance
New Mexico Early Childhood Education and Care Department (formerly CYFD) provides child care assistance to low-income working families with children ages 18 months to 5 years during the regular school year, and 18 months to 13 years for the Summer Enrichment Program. Family qualification is based on income and work hours. GMS is a five-star provider with ECECD’s FOCUS TQRIS Program. ECECD has recently expanded eligibility!

GMS recognizes that families wishing to enroll their children will be coming from varying financial positions. The Mission of our school is to serve children from diverse backgrounds in reaching their highest potential, and so in addition to offering free NM PreK and accepting ECECD Childcare Assistance, we also offer individual scholarships for families in need as funding allows.
