Founded in 1970, family-owned and operated Little Playmates has always been focused on the simple philosophy of providing the very highest level of preschool and childcare to the Mesilla Valley. Since that time, Little Playmates has grown to include six clean, modern facilities that proudly provide nationally accredited, state-licensed day care to generations of children and their families. With a reputation for trust in the community, Little Playmates is proud to have generations of families come to their centers, providing childcare for the children of those that first attended decades ago.


An optimal child-to-caregiver ratio coupled with the educational programs at Little Playmates assures attention to every child, and the centers have been nationally recognized for their quality. The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) has given national accreditation annually to Little Playmates since the early ‘90s, and the facility has earned a five-star license from the State of New Mexico. In addition, Little Playmates is a three-time winner of the Quality New Mexico Piñon Award.
