NMREC offering assistance with childcare
The coronavirus pandemic has greatly impacted our daily lives, changing the way we learn, work, play, shop, and dine. One of the many obstacles families are facing during this pandemic is finding adequate childcare. In a rural area such as Mora, it can be especially difficult to find a licensed childcare provider. The New Mexico Regional Education Cooperative is alleviating some of these challenges by helping families identify childcare resources across the state.
This blog contains two clickable PDF documents with links to childcare resources, financial assistance, and safety information. While there are no licensed childcare providers in the Mora area, it is possible for family, friends, and neighbors to become temporary care providers. During the emergency health declaration, the state will temporarily register family, friend, and neighbor (FFN) providers who may be eligible to receive childcare assistance funding.
Temporary FFN providers will be required to complete a background check, as will all family members over the age of 18 living in their home. Temporary FFN providers will also be required to complete a three-hour online health and safety training and an online CPR training.
