Families needing quality childcare and who qualify for Child Care Assistance through New Mexico Children, Youth & Families Department are welcome at ABQ Children’s Academy! We are an approved childcare provider, and we provide so much more than “day care” for your child while you are at work or school. In our academy, your child is immersed in learning opportunities and surrounded by compassionate teachers and happy playmates.

How CYFD Assistance Works

Families who have been approved for CYFD child care subsidies may have no or little direct costs for the educational programs at ABQ Children’s Academy. All or part of your child’s tuition is paid directly by CYFD. Any remaining balance not covered by your child care subsidy is reflected on a monthly billing statement.

How to Qualify for CYFD Childcare Assistance

You may be eligible for financial assistance from CYFD to pay for your child’s tuition. There’s only one way to find out— call or visit your nearest CYFD Child Care Services Bureau field office to apply. Eligibility is determined based on your family size and gross monthly income. Visit CYFD’s Child Care Assistance page for more information.

Need More Help?

ABQ Children’s Academy’s payment policy requires full payment of your child’s tuition by the 14th of each month. However, if the remaining or full balance is too much for your household budget to cover in one lump sum, please speak to the director about setting up semi-monthly payments.

Your child already loves learning. ABQ Children’s Academy helps them love school!
