SWREC School Reentry Child Care Support Project

Welcome to the Southwest Regional Education Cooperative’s (SWREC) School Reentry Child Care Support Project page.

Our Goal

The goal of the project is to collect information and connect you to the resources you need.

We Support You

This project supports you, as we emerge from the pandemic, by serving as a clearinghouse of resources, networking, and support. We work with families, early education and child care providers, out of school time programs and staff, and K–12 schools to sustain strong, economically successful communities.

Connecting You to the Resources You Need

Our project is a collaboration between the New Mexico Early Childhood Education and Care Department (NM ECECD), the New Mexico Public Education Department (NM PED) and the New Mexico Regional Education Cooperatives Association (NM RECA). Learn more about this project by viewing the ELOC Presentation.

Please help us by continuing to share challenges you are facing with your regional coordinator (links to your regional coordinator below), and we will do our best to connect you to the resources and people you need.
