ABOUT US

Nurturing tiny minds and cultivating brighter futures: that's the heartbeat of Community Partnership for Children (CPC). Since 2003, we've been Grant County's champion for early childhood education, supporting tiny learners from birth to 5 years old. CPC is one of fifteen coalitions throughout the state of New Mexico under the Early Childhood Education and Care Department (ECECD).

 

We strive to identify and create collaborative projects that close existing barriers within childcare and the local workforce to better meet the increased needs of families and businesses.

We believe the seeds sown in early years blossom into strong individuals, thriving families, and a vibrant community, which is why we will continue to improve childcare and family resources for Grant County.
