Governor Lujan Grisham launches new stipend program supporting more than 800 early childhood professionals seeking advanced degrees


ECECD Spotlights Early Childhood Educators for Teacher Appreciation Month

SANTA FE – As part of Teacher Appreciation Month, the New Mexico Early Childhood Education and Care Department (ECECD) celebrated with visits by agency leadership to early childhood centers in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Pecos, and Pojoaque Pueblo, delivering treats and supplies and meeting with teachers, administrators, and other staff. While these early childhood professionals play a critical role in the development and wellbeing of our state’s youngest population, they are among the lowest paid workers in the economy and early childhood education systems are experiencing teacher shortages nationwide. The Lujan Grisham administration has made significant investments to reverse this trend and boost the early childhood workforce across New Mexico, including the recent launch of the Early Childhood Educator Student Success Grant on May 6.
