About New Futures Childcare

New Futures School (NFS) Childcare is a 4 Star Program!   NFS strives to help support teenage parents AND strives for quality childcare for the babies.  The babies range in age from 2 weeks to 3 years. New Mexico has a quality assurance program, Aim High, which rates child care programs through the NM Children, Youth, and Families Department.  NFS childcare is rated a four star program which means the babies here attend a high quality program.  NFS, as other childcare centers do, have regular “verification visits” from Aim High where professionals visit some of the classrooms to observe:  the interaction staff have with the babies, the physical setup in the room, the toys available to the children, the binders with staff observations of the individual child which then the staff uses to set short and long term goals for each child.  Each room has curriculum plans which are individualized for each baby.  The monthly plans are posted for the parents to see.

NFS is very proud of our program and how we take care of the children’s needs and how we work to help the children develop intellectually, physically, socially, while keeping them safe and healthy.
