Registration for Summer Child Care.

*If you have an existing account, please make sure you are logged into the parent portal and not submitting a new registration request! Duplicate requests will be rejected, and you risk losing your spot.
Children's Choice will be offering full-day Summer Camp this year at four different locations for children aged 5-12:

 

BANDELIER
SOMBRA DEL MONTE
OSUNA
NORTH STAR

Dates/Time: Tuesday, May 30th through Friday, August 11 th from 7:00am to 6:00pm
We will be closed on Monday, May 29th and Tuesday, July 4 th , in observation of Memorial Day and Independence Day, respectively.
Children’s Choice will also be offering full-day care on Friday, May 26th , as well as Monday, August 14th . There will be a separate registration for those days. Please keep
an eye out for that.

 

Prices:  We will be offering three different rates for Summer Camp:

  • $38 per day
  • $148 per week
  • There is a 10% sibling discount off the second and subsequent children.
  • We are also offering a Short Day option at a $70 per day rate if your child also attends summer school in addition to our Summer
    Camp 2023 program. For more information about the Short Day option, please contact our Accounts Manager Sara at sara@childrens-choice.org.

 

Registration Fee: There is a $20 Registration Fee due no later than June 1st . If you are on a Child Care Assistance contract, this fee will be waived.
Billing/Scheduling: When you register, you will be asked to choose the weeks you would like, and then select the days you expect your child will attend for MOST of those weeks (you can change this later). You will then be billed either $38/day or $148/week, depending on the number of days you selected.

 

If your child shows up to attend program on an unscheduled day, we will do everything we can to accommodate them, but we cannot guarantee that there will be room on that
day. To avoid being turned away, please schedule all attendance in advance. If we do accept them on an unscheduled day, you may be asked to pick them up immediately if our attendance reaches capacity.

 

The deadline to make changes, or cancel your registration, is Thursday, May 25th 2023.
Please email our Registration Manager Hunter at welcome@childrens-choice.org if you’d like to make changes or cancel. After this date, we will base our staffing schedule on this information and therefore will not be able to issue credits on your account for scheduled days not attended. We appreciate your understanding as this allows us to pay, train, and take very good care of the staff members who take very good care of your children. The only exceptions to this policy are:

  1. If we are forced to close due to a positive case of COVID-19 at the site, or
  2. If your child is ineligible to attend due to COVID-19 exposure (documentation will be required to verify this)
  3. If you have registered for days that you would like to cancel after the deadline, and only if there is a family on our waitlist who also needs to schedule those days

Financial Assistance: New Mexico’s Early Childhood Education & Care Department (ECECD) is supporting families who need child care. The state has changed eligibility requirements in order to help as many families as possible. Please go to https://www.nmececd.org/child-care-assistance/ to see if you qualify. You can contact Sara Mestas for more information at sara@childrens-choice.org.

 

 

Please note that effective July 1st , ECECD will no longer waive copays. If you have questions about this, please contact our Accounts Manager Sara at sara@childrens-choice.org.
You will receive a more detailed email closer to the start of summer with site specific information, including site director contacts.

 

Please do not bring your child to the program if anyone in your household is sick!
*Please note, we are required to comply with all orders and guidance from the Governor’s office, the Department of Health, the CDC, state licensing, and APS. As a result, there may be changes to this program. We will update you as we gain new information. Please keep an eye out for all emails from us.

Thank you! We look forward to a fun and safe summer together!

Snack and Lunch

We provide a morning and afternoon snack. Each child needs to bring a sack lunch every day that does not require refrigeration or heating.
