Drop-in & Evening Care (Students) Program

The Drop-In and Evening Care Program is sponsored through the U.S. Department of Education. The goal of the program is to assist parents with a low cost or free child care service. This program is available to UNM students with the greatest need of child care services as a means to support their staying in school and completing their desired degree program.

The CCAMPIS Program, like the UNM Children's Campus full day and half day program is accredited by the National Association of the Education for Young Children and The Children, Youth and Families Department’s Aim High Program. We are also a licensed child care facility with the State of New Mexico. We are pleased to be able to serve you and your children.
